What the *beep* is that!!!!! *EDITED*

This afternoon while looking at my orange tree sponge i noticed a small animals tentacles coming otu of the rock. The tentacles are bright yellow with small black bands around them and are very thin, much thinner than any bristles or tubes in the tank, and some reach about 2" long! The only creature I could imagine this being is a serpent sea star but I have never seen a yellow one and I havent ever had a serpent in the tank before... Any thoughts on what this might be and whether or not I should remove and qt it would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks guys 8O 8O

Could be a serpent star (my first guess) a common hitchiker in LR, or it could be a spaghetti worm.

PLEASE do not copy photos from other sites. The photo that was above was an obvious photo from a very popular online retailer and I do belive they copyright all their graphics. At the very least link to their page vs blatantly copying the image.

Also, beachbumin I would suggest more 'family friendly' topic titles from here on out. Being a family friendly site is one of our highest priorities.
