Anyone have an idea on what the following might be, can’t get a good picture. It a worm type thing, it looks like a egg noodle, translucent white, about 0.5mm thick and about 50mm long (that’s the longest I’ve seen) It does not move about the tank, but stretches itself to reach different parts of the rock.

It stretch out from a single point on the rock and "bites" stuff, but it does not really hide away much, it is stretched out most of the time, only occasionally does it hide away.

Thank for the links, the closest looking is the spaghetti worm, although I have only seen 1 tentacle, but I also know that I have foraminiferans.
