    hi all .. I just spotted this worm like thing crawling next to my zoas. on few occasions it tried to check what's inside the zoa polyp but quickly retreated as the zoa also closed very fast. but while moving in between the polyps they don't seem too bothered

    I see most of the time its looking for food around the zoas on the live rock but I'm not sure if it won't nibble on my corals as well.

    Is that a frag plug? If yes, move it while the worm is retracted into the rock.
    If the worm migrate again towards the zoa, then its an indication that it could be a predator on zoa.
