Look up bristle worm.. Looks fatter than mine but otherwise the same color, just a filter feeder if so.

I say adult bristle worm from pic. They look like pink centipedes. Not a benefit to a tank from what I've learned. I've never seen a shrimp like that before...

Mantis shrimp, or pistol shrimp? Get a pic of the front half of it.

common bristle worms are always a benefit to a tank. That looks like a eunicid worm to me.
