    Looks like tiny fan worms, touch them and see what happens. If they have a hard white tube, then they are fan worms.

    Very interesting Gaboon - Henk posted VERY similar little critters that's growing from the live rock, between HIS zoanthids as well....

    Have a look at: Eyelash moss animal (Bicellariella ciliata)

    Gaboon is it possible to count the amount of tentacles 1 of them has.
    It looks like pylops to me.
