Newbie with a question???

I used to freak out about anything and everything that I couldn't identify (I say that like it was a long time ago, but it was only a few weeks, LOL). I think I'm over that now! LOL! But I am curious as to what these are... They are all over the bottom of my tank. Thanks for help with I.D.

They don't appear to be moving at all. However the one that I took a closeup picture of is no longer there, but I think my hermit crab may have been through that area and ate it, I can see his tracks in the sand.

Following this one. The second picture could have been taken in my tank. Although, I added a Diamond Watchman Goby on Sunday afternoon and last night I noticed a lot less of these. I don't think he is eating them though because he only sifts the very surface of the sand at this point.

The dark spots in the sand up against the glass on the close up shot are bubbles. But the thing on the top of the sand that looks like a solid cylinder isn't. They range from about an 1/8" to about 1/4" long. I'm stumped!

Just to make sure we're all talking about the same thing I circled what I am puzzled by in the pic.

The goby belongs to Rdnelson99... I only have two small clowns, way too much poop for them. It also just showed up overnight. Who knows?? Weird!!

Have you felt it? If its hard It's probably a tube from a featherduster that chipped off a rock...
