Hello,

I noticed this guy in the middle of my torch coral. It has a rapid back and forth feeding response (retract/extend) when there is food in the water. It does not seem to be stinging the coral or causing any issues with it. I believe it is a tube worm, but I wanted to double check.

The torch is retracted because I poked it right before I took the photo. Sorry for all the blue light. I thought the Google Nightsight would do a better job with it.

Thanks!

Impossible to tell with all that blue light. Doesn’t look like aiptasia. Maybe tube worm or barnacle. But again, white light pic would be better,
