worm like thread

I found some reddish worm like thing with long tentacles in my tank. At first I thought it was algae, but when I was removing it, it looked like a worm was attached to it. What is it? Is it harmful?

If it looks like this then it`s a bristle worm.

It could be a spaghetti worm. They can be white-brown-redish.
