What the Heck is this?

I found this as the only living thing riding along with my new live rock. It started out looking like a 1 inch long grub worm with red tips on both ends. Now it has elongated and has these little bulbous sections along its body. I am worried that it is some demon creature that will kill everything I try to keep. (I'm a newbie - Still very paranoid) Please help me ID this strange little worm like creature.

Sorry about the pictures, something happened when uploading them. They look fine on my system but look awful after upload. I am trying another picture.

That's what a peanut worm looks like when it comes out to say "hello". Looks like it's been in a fight though. 8O

Cheers

What is a peanut worm? Will it attack and kill? Do I want it in the tank? Most of all, will it ever look better than that?

From what I have read on the internet, the peanut worms eat pods...
