ive def seen both ends of it so i dont think it is a mini brittle star. it was crawling all around the LR then went into a hole.

Looks like a digitat hydroid from the pic. However, that pic isn't too good for a positive ID. Another thought could be a spaghetti worm, though, they usually have many, super fine strands.

I agree with Lani, brittle star leg.

hmm maybe. it moves around like a worm. and it doesnt seem to have any "filaments" like the hydroid does. the pic is bad because it is sooo tiny i cant zoom in anymore

Yoda says...

If it no filaments has, then a hydroid it isn't.

 

I say...

Do you have a tripod and macro settings on the camera?

Can't really tell much from the picture, but the coloration and pattern reminds me of Dorvilleidae. Would love to see another picture.

ive seen 2 more of these worms and i was able to suck one up with the baster... heres a pic, take a look at the shadow it casts. good to note it is MAYBE a centimeter fully stretched and about the thickness of a hair..in the tank it appears white and black striped but upon closer inspection on a white plate it actullay has a pinky glow....

I also think it looks like something in the Dorvilleidae group.

definitely think were getting closer. it looks like the first picture under that group. but not so much like the others.

I'd agree with it being a dorvilleid. One near sure-fire way to find out is to look and see if you can find the set of jaws within the pharynx. The species I have in my system use those same jaws to mow strands of filamentous algae.
