    Hey all. Please excuse my ignorance. But i bot some soft coral from a reputable dealer nearby and when i got home I found severaly snake like worms extending from the live rock. They are black and white and seem to be a bit hairy. They extend out and have a very snakey look about their movement. they dont appear to have a visible head either, and are about an inch long. Does anyone have any idea what this is?

    Sounds to me like a brittle star inside the rock and only the arms are showing.

    Good thing. It will eat uneaten food and this type doesn't prey on fish.
