Hi and thanks for reply.
Would never have thought of peanut worm as thought they live in sandbed and whatever this is,its on rockwork 12 inch from sandbed but just did quick google search and some peanut worms can and do live in the rocks,it did look like hard calcified at first but certain points in video looks like it stretching,while stretching it is about 1 inch and while in rocks its about quarter inch.
And while searching peanut worm,***** worms and ribbon worms came up lol
Thanks for interest

Just for update it not gone ,its just motionless at bottom of crevice in rocks where it was but im thinking just piece of detritus or something with coraline algae growing in it as for hours now it just laying in crevice not moving and even though in videos above the movement looked very fast and deliberate rather than the flow just randomonly blowing it around.i think its empty tube off something or just some kind detritus/ waste.
Thanks for interest though and them peanut worms look interesting and be cool to have a ***** worm in tank as be good conversational piece.
Get a visitor and say " hey want to see my ***** worm" can just imagine tje look i get from visitors and there reply lol ^_^
