Pics under white lighting would help a bit more. That said it looks like a sweeper tentacle. They use them to feed and to keep other corals from encroaching on “their” turf. LPS corals send them out at night.

I’ll see if I can get a better picture of it. If it is what you said do I need to do anything or just leave it?

thanks

No need to do anything but you’ll want to keep other corals out of reach of the sweepers.
