sand

So I have 2 tanks. My big tank has very fine beige sand in it, and when I have the lights out and shine a light in there are very small worms that are coming up sometimes they have sand wrapped around them. My other tank has black sand, it it a little courser. There are no worms in this. Is it just because the tank is only 4 months old or do I need finer sand? Do I need the worms in there?

Yes live rock in both tanks, they almost look like hair on the fine sand.

Have a look at the below link and see if you can tell which worms it is you have. It's a great site about hitchhikers.

Here are pics I hope, the lines coming up through the sand are the "hairs", then when they get on top of the sand they will look like the second pic, "hair covered in sand" Some are not and just waive around but are so small I can't get pics.
