I have a few of these also and have seen no ill effects... I looked pretty close and it looks like something out of a Sci-Fi movie...it then goes into the sand and disappears.. I think it is a type of worm...I cannot get a picture of it at all because it is too quick..My fish don't touch it either...it is too quick..Maybe someone else that knows has seen this also and can identify it for both of us.

that sounds familiar, sort of. i got a mushroom rock last week, and have since notice what looks like a matis shrimp, sort of. its about 3/4" long and really scoots around. it is some sort of copepod, and is electric green. is yours a copepod, or is it more like an eel?
