well do you want someone to just give you an ID for curiosity's sake or are you concerned that it could be a potential "bad guy"?


I can't really give you an ID based on the description. But if you only care about whether it's reef-safe, I can tell you that it's probably is harmless.


There's only 2 worms w/ lots of legs that you really need to worry about...and these guys are usually very rare in aquariums and pretty big. The Eunice worm and the Fire worm. do a search for those two and if it doesnt look like that (which I think it won't since none of these are really white), then you should be okay.


Here's my thread on Eunice worms to supplement your research:
