Red stringy thing

This is the weirdest thing in my tank so far. Its got about 10 strings and they go to the sandbed looking for things. It actually looks like its fishing. I cant see what the string are attached to, but its obvious that they are attached to a brain or body. When you get to close to the tank and it senses you the strings retract.

Anybody have a clue what this thing is?

Looks like a spaghetti worm, harmless detrivore.
