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?

150 gal inwall reef tank, DIY everything except the tank and skimmer, MAG-24 return, 3 1200 Maxi-jets, Turboflotor 1000 Skimmer, 100qt Igloo Cooler sump.

Looks like a spaghetti worm, harmless detrivore.
