they are brislteworms. they aren't bad, but make sure not to touch them. the other one looks like a feather duster, does it retract into a tube? a clearer pic would help though

tube worm, or more commonly called feather duster. I've got a bunch of mini feather dusters in my tank, they just filter out any debris that passes them in the water column.

it completely depends on which kind, but without a very clear picture we won't be able to tell you. i have mini ones which stay very small, about half inch to an inch. pet stores usually sell common or Hawaiian feather dusters, both of which get a little over 6 inches.
