Bobbit Worm?

I was dipping a new colony of Lobo's that I got and I found this rather terrifying guy in the water after I removed the colony. My gut is telling me that it's a Bobbit worm and I've had a couple others from the lfs tell me that they think it might be as well but I wanted to put it out there and get some more opinions.
Right now fully stretched out it's about 5-6".

What do you guys think?

Eunicid worm. Yes, it's a carnivore.

Thanks Mr. X!

I'm debating oh what to do with it right now, part of me thinks that it would be cool to put it in it's own tank and see how it matures but i'm not sure if it is worth it.

I hate to kill anything... perhaps it can live in a sump somewhere? I don't think a eunicid worm tank would be much fun.....lol.

My fear of putting this in my sump would be that it would somehow get into my tank. I don't want to kill it cause I'm facinated by it even though I'm terrified of how big it could potentially get

It won't make it back up. The only way would be through the return pump which would grind it up pretty good.
