Nasty Looking Hitch Hiker Help.

Found a couple of these long yellow tentacle hitch hikers in my lr. Please help me ID it and see if they're beneficial or bad. I see a couple of long yellow arms poking out of the lr. Every time i try to pick a piece of its tentacle off with a tweezer it goes back inside the rock. Ill attach some pictures of this nasty looking thing. It doesn't look like anything i've ever seen. Has a TON of little yellow tentacles connected to it's body.

they are pretty gross looking though, but when they are in your sand bed or rock all you would possibly see is little hair like catchers
