Bristle worm I think. You can take those out of the tank with some tank water in a jar and it will live for weeks on end. Most say they are bad, but I think they are good. Never had any trouble with them eating on stuff.

They are good. the people who say common bristle worms are bad are misinformed. They are scavengers that eat left over food and fish poop. They do not eat anything healthy, and have zero ability to catch fish. People pay money for "cleanup crews" when they get them for free with their rock.

Just don't touch it with your hands! I've never done it, but I've heard others say it feels like a bee sting.
