Another Hitchhiker - Can someone identify?

Recommended Posts

I've spotted this on my live rock I got 2 days ago.  It appear to be attached to the rock (it hasn't relocated) and it extends and waves around in the water, but then tends to retract if I put a flashlight on it.  Can someone tell me if they recognize this and if it is problematic?  Thanks!

Are we talking about the tube looking thing? Is it hard? Does the thing that waves around come out of the tube? Really need a better pic.

Sorry, that's the best picture I was able to get.  It looks like the entire tube thing extends and waves around like a tentacle.  When it extends, the entire tube gets thinner.  Nothing is coming out of the tube.  I hope that helps.  THanks!

Lookup peanut worm. They extend out almost like an elephant trunk with a tiny feather duster on the end.

They are good guys and fun to watch when they are out.  🙂

Peanut worm? More like PENIS worm - I mean am I right folks?

 

And what's the deal with airline peanuts?
