Need ID, polyp-looking thing and strange orange worms

I noticed 2 of these polyps, both coming out right at the base of the roakc where it meets the sand. I've never ever seen them before and I have no idea what they are. There's a pic of them in photo2 and photo 3.

The strange orange worms are all over the place. Sand, LR, everywhere. They have a mobile orange tube and their little tentacles come out one end and are orange with tiny black bands around the circumference of the tentacle. There's a picture of 2 of these moving on the glass in photo1 and a picture of one dangling from a coral skeleton in photo3. They don't seem to be harming anything, but I just want to make sure as I never had them before.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The yellow worms are spaghetti worms. The polyp looks like a pest rock anemone. Mostly refered to as majano.

I knew I'd seen those somewhere...majano. That's so weird. Started the tank in Feb 04, moved it june 05, and here it is March 06 and these are the first I've seen in it ever.

Recommended termination procedured? Kalk injection?

Show's how well thier survival skills are. You could use the kalk paste. Or you could use a commercial product like Joe's Juice.
