Hi guys,

I was just wondering if this is anything out of the ordinary. I have tons of critters coming out of the LR as I'm still in the cycling process but this one caught my eye and seems to be growing pretty quick. Any help will be appreciated and sorry if it is a complete noob question.

It's slightly reddish in colour and seems to be concentrated under a specific rock. Looks slightly like a worm of sorts but has many tentacles which is what I'm not sure about. I considered maybe some sort of algae but it really does move even with the flow pumps turned off.

yip, agree, most likely some spaghetti worm, although this one do have rather long tentacles. Nice to have and do form part of a clean up crew.
