monster in my tank?

I was recently cleaning my tank and I lifted a big piece of liverock and underneath it was a creature that looks like a millipede which quickly ducked under the crushed coral and I havent seen it since. Then again, I havent lifted that rock up since then. Any idea what it might be. I will try to get a pic up, but am afraid of lifting the rock back up, call me a woos!!

If you have a trigger in your tank that's pretty good sized, he would likely eat the mantis, or so I have been told.
