Spaghetti worms and culture clash

I'm now pretty sure I have a spaghetti worm! (New things popping up every day). Talking to my mother on the phone last night, I told her about it and she got conceerned at first - she thought I had gotten a bad batch of pasta ("spaghetti worm" must sound absolutely terrible to a 79 year old Italian mother!!!).

I had to reassure her that all of my pasta was fine - stored safely in the cupboards, but that I would check it carefully before cooking it.

In the meantime, the worm is putting on a tentacle show on a rock. Very cool.

She'll come over to see it this afternoon when I get home. She's bringing me some fresh baked ziti, just in case.

30 gal standard 55 lbs LR, 60 lb live sand, 10 gal sump/refugium. Urchin skimmer, mag7 pump, 3 x 96W PC combination 10,000K/actinic bulb, 2 blue LED moonlights
SG 1.024, temp 79.5, pH 8.4

Livestock I added:

1 skunk cleaner. 12 hermits: red, scarlet, blue. 15 or so assorted snails. Discosomas, Ricordia, Rhodactis mushroom corals, chaetomorpha (sump), 1 feather duster, Montipora digitata, Montipora capricornis, Montipora hispids. assorted zoos, Xenia, Kenya tree coral, green Sinularia, green star polyps, branching hammer coral, bubble coral, Devil's hand leather. Yellow chromis, purple firefish.

Hitchhikers: the usual suspects :crabs, bristles, urchin, mantis shrimp (now in exile in mantis tank)

List of possible/likely newcomers:

Feather duster. PJ cardinal, Bangghai cardinal, Firefish goby, Clownfish, Neon goby, Yellow watchman goby, Orchid dottyback. Various corals.
