I know I posted about this once already but I got the answer: chrysophytes but I can’t find anything that looks close to what I have. I don’t think it’s a hydroid either. Maybe a snail?? Or a worm?

On the same rock there are spirorbid worms which I don’t know if are dead or alive. But I have never heard of them growing retracting hair out of them. Will this thing kill corals?
