    After feeding my tank last night, I noticed some motion and took a closer look. It was a long transparent tentacle coming from the live rock. The head was wriggling around pretty good. I took video with my phone, I apologize for poor quality.

    I've gotten pretty good at identifying hitchhikers thanks to this forum, but this one is stumping me. Any ideas?

    I don't think so because I see no branching the in tentacle.
    Just a single long tentacle, the head area has a slight white hue. There is no visible tube or foot.

    Definitely odd. I don't like worms in the reef tank. Lol

    I think it is a Peanut Worm.
