Most likely a bristleworm, usually half red half brown/black. They are creepy and look nasty, but a good cleaner and a sign of a healthy and developing tank.

Bristle worm. Harmless unless you touch them, so be sure to wear thick rubber gloves when play around in the tank for now on. They are a pretty good scavengers so they basically are part of your clean up crew. Click on the xtalreef link in my signature and scroll down a bit for more info.
