A creature with long antennae sticking out of the rock and arms/tentacles going in and out. The first thought was «is this aiptasia» but i cant see any polyp and im unsure if aiptasia even has hairs like that.

if its not aiptasia im guessing it is some kind of creature that baits pray using the antennas and grab it with the arms, cause thats what it looks like its doing..

anyone know? Sorry for the bad quality on the video, its very much zoomed in..

Thanks guys. On iPhone you can watch the video by downloading it, not sure why it doesnt just play in Safari..

I think it might be a peanut worm based on pictures i see online, thanks for the suggestion! Although i havent found a picture of one with antennas like this. The antennas are clear yes, and almost impossible to capture on my iPhone camera, but they give a blueish glow on parts of them if i use a flashlight and beam them. In the attached video i captured some of this effect, (but I realise its quite hard to see from the video).

when it comes to the size I dont think its that big, i have max zoom on here
