mini hitchhikers

Been trying to get a picture for an identfication of these little guys but they wont stop moving when in the open. They are about 1mm wide and 4mm long look like little gray tubes. Fast moving going in and out of holes in the live rock. I thought they were baby bristle worms but i havent ever seen worms move like that.

Will keep trying to get a clean picture of one to help identify.
