ID on this little worm?

Recommended Posts

So this morning I noticed this little worm in my tank grazing on some rock. When I came up to get a closer look at it, it was very quick to crawl into a little nook in the rockwork. Hopefully it isn't a baby Bobbit but some clarification and an ID would be great. The worm was only about 1.5cm long with two antennae. Pics attached below.

Awesome, Thank You. Would you happen to know how large they get?

They do not get much bigger. They are cousins to bristle worms and the type of critter you rarely see.
