    Hey guys. I was wondering whether anyone could help me out with an ID on these two worms (circled in red). I have a new tank, about two months and after a the cycled completed i noticed these critters. initially there was just one but now theres about 6 or 7.

    They stay in the same locality and with strech out to another part of rock and then pull back.

    Wanted to know if they a good or a bad sign.

    Thanks for the help

    I thought it might be one but they seem to come straight out from the rock as opposed to a tube. Also there's only one 'worm' whereas in the pictures ive seen there's two. Dont know if this makes a difference
