    I have noticed these thin back what look like legs in my base rock. I left it because I have never seen it come out of the rock. Today I noticed this long red leg looking thing coning out the rock. It look like either a worm or a star fish leg. It seems to have hairs on it. Here is a pic. Please help.

    Ok, sorry @Dre, might be a bristleworm?
    What color was the body? pinkish red or black?

    OK thanks guys. I have seen small legs that are black and today I saw a big leg and it was red pink. Do I need to worry?

    The first pic was a bristle worm. Leg sounds for me it is a crab. When your lights of the leg thing will come out. I think its a crab, it its one try to catch him and sump him.
