A new find.....but what is it!

Hi all.
I have noticed in my very new tank an interesting critter in the dirt. My inital thought is that it is some kind of worm, though it does look alot like the little arm of a starfish as they showed me in the store. It is teeny tiny, I only found it because I was looking for my snails. I have been able to rule out the possibility of snail so now I am beyond curious. Sorry it is so tiny I cant even get a pic of it. So does anyone know where I can find a resource on the worms? Or how I can get a better idea of what it is.
It really resembled the behaviors of the worm like things we saw at the aquarium. They would pop up and eat then disappear again. Only this one one slow and kinda waving about. SOOOOOO any ideas. Thank you

P.s in addition to the live rock I did add live sand (4 lbs)
