If they are not feeders then it may be a Spiniod worm of some sort.Keep and eye on it and see if there is any build up as that would make it a worm.
Should not be a problem.

Ive seen my brains put out some super long stingers before. A good two inches! Looks just like the feeders but mighty long...Its probably a stinger, so make sure your other corals stay away!

They are called sweeper tentacles. The LPS coral will use them if they feel they are being encroahed upon.
