Is this your UFO?

http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2003-0...s/image009.jpg

If so, it's a tube dwelling chaetopterid worm. More info here >> The Worms Crawl In…by R Shimek

It's about 2/3 down the page.

Cheers
Steve

BTW, you can't click the link, you have to copy and paste it into your browser, or you get the RC banner.
