Starfish????

Is anyone please able to id this cretin. It has darker feather like bits on the end of each white arm, and moves them one at a time to its mouth in the centre. It's appears now and again in the same spot. Thanks for your help.

Looks like something in my tank on some live rock I've been trying to ID, it does stick it's tentacles in its mouth all the time. Does itclose up where you can't hardly see it? I thought mine had two heads but I've only seen one open for the last few day so I may have been mistaken.

Here's my thread for some comparison:
Help id some type of small coral or anemone

It's a worm of some sort. A filter feeder obviously, but I can't find a name. I do remember watching something on Discovery Channel about a dive somewhere and saw some video of that worm pulling in food exactly as you described. Pretty awesome.

Thanks guys. I'm not sure if it's static or moves about. Until today I hadn't seen it for a month or so which makes me think it moves. Was kinda hoping it was a feather star. Been looking everywhere for a pic to id it, but can't find anything like it. What you can't see in the photo is the darker feathery ends to each arm. It seems to stay toward the bottom of the rock.
