Peanut Worm?

In my earlier post I asked about a little critter shooting out some dust or toxins. What exactly is a peanut worm a person told me that he possibly had the same thing happen? Any thoughts or advice TIA

Peanut worms are harmless detrivors that mainly burrow in the rock. Most likely what you saw was excrement, sediment from the burrow or possibley a spawning emmission. It should not be a concern if so.
