Hard to tell what it is, I'm not well versed in just about any coral identification. It retracts if you try to touch it, but will come out almost immediately. Any help is appreciated!

cool ,not a feather duster correct? looks fleshy.
Unsure, what are the signs for a feather duster? Googling seems like it 'could' be one. The tube is at the base of the rock and it extends out and waves around. Super active at night too.

It has green glowing arms and tips.

if it is in the tube and worrying you i think just getting it to retract and superglueing over the hole should just eradicate whatever it is
Good to know I can get rid of it with ease. I don't want to unless it's considered a pest. I have a very new tank and would love additional diversity :D

Appreciate all the help everyone!

So it got super angry when I shined a flash light on it and retracted completely. Here's just the tube.

That tube looks like one of a vermetid snail
