Worm? Hitchhiker

Noticed a worm on my glass today. Picked up some frags from my new super local LFS last, but don't want to automatically blame the new arrivals. Especially since I've seen similar tentacles in my sand for months. Don't seem to be causing too much harm, but let me know if I should be worried. Thanks in advance.
