what the???

Well my tank has been up and running about now for 2months with liverock about 75lbs..I only have 2 fish in there right now(clowns) some crabs and snails..But lately I have been seeing things come out of the rock..one of the things is from a whole in the rock there ALOT of stringly looking arms about 2-3 inches wide and they are definitely retracting and looking for something and they just all go back to the hole in the rock...I cant get pictures but what could it be..Spaghetti worm??? Are they bad??

THanks

Tony

sorry Im tired..They are 2-3 inches long and all seem to go back th a samm hole in the rock. The "tentacles" seem to rub all along the rock and sand. I watched my hermit walk past it..The tentacles didnt mess with it..It seems like its grabbing stuff off the sand and retracting up to the hole.

I heard from one of the advisors that starfish will hitch hike in LR and then snake their legs out. It sure sounds like a starfish, do the legs look anything like that? I have found weird stuff on my LR but no snaking tentacles yet that I am aware of 8O
