    Was it swimming in the water column or on the substrate? Can you get a closer or bigger pic of him?

    it does look like a baby bristle worm. And if you got one, then you got many.

    They tend to shy away from light. He most likely were looking for a place to hide.

    They are good, part of the clean up crew.
