Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

I was getting through some weekend maintenance before the big game and noticed this black object embedded in some Zoas.

Didn’t think much of it until I noticed it had little antennas. I’ve never seen a black worm/slug like this before.

Any thoughts?

At first glance it looks like a sponge, but antennas? Hmm does it have a hard tube that it's poking out of?

I think you may be correct. It's definitely a hard tube as I went and poked it. LOL! So it's not a worm or a slug, which is a relief to me.

It is now removed... I think the actual critter floated away as I scraped it off. Think one of my Clowns ate it. LOL! So hopefully that's that.
