bristle worm?

i recently bought a mushroom coral and it was healthy when i bought and stayed that way for like 2 days. it would open up when the lights went on. on the third day it didnt open up. weird i thought but ill wait and see maybe tommorow itll go back to normal. the next day same thing so about 2 days later i went to the pet shop the guy said that there might be something eating it. so when i got home i looked at it carefully but i didnt see anything weird.so i decided to check under it. when i turned it over there was a little red worm like thing i didnt really get a good look cuz it hid. i dont have a picture of it but i was wondering if any1 had an idea of wat it was. i think its too late to save my mushroom but at least its the only coral in my tank.

I think you just have to catch it, but be careful not to handle it bare handed...

you can get worm traps. they are a tube that you put food in and then they go for the food but cant get out. my lfs has them for like $10 you might want to look for them. there might be more then one in the tank.
