Correct me if i'm wrong....Spaghetti worms? If so, they are harmless.

I don't think it is Spaghetti worms those string like things are coming out of a spongey substance on the LR but I could be wrong.

It's just part of the sponge. I have some sponges that send out "creepers" just like that.

Never saw those do that before. Very cool. All I have are these lime green sponges all over the tank that just sit there and filter.

If they started out as small spirals they are probably Spirorbid worms
