What in the tank is this?

I can not figure this out. (Yes I always Google before posting). I thought this was maybe a dead bristle worm because this is how big the creature is during the day.... but then tonight I took a flashlight to my tank to look at the night life going to work and discovered this thing probably stretched about 3-4 inches long floating with the flow. After shinning the light it quickly got back to this length.
 

One end is connected to the zoa frag and the other is free flowing. ANY ideas at all here?

 

(No I don’t have dip, i know I should dip first but I get my corals from my buddy who grows them himself. I’ll get dip soon)

You were correct. I took one out but then found 3-4 more. I do have some zoas, should I continuously remove them or are they good?

They can irritate other things so I would just pluck them when you can. Usually they come and go pretty quickly.
