Tenticles from the deep...

I have at least two sets of long tenticles that come up from my sandy/crushed coral substrate bottom. Anyone have any idea what these could be? I know that there's a sea cucumber crawling around somewhere under the sand- havent' seen him since the first month since I put him in. I seeded the sand bed with some live sand from the LFS. I have noticed many little brittle stars and other small pods living in the sand. But not quite sure what these tenticles belong to.

Got any ideas???


Marlin: Okay, a mollusk walks up to this sea cucumber, well he doesn't actually walk, he's just there, and he turns to the sea cucumber, and... Well, wait, there's a mollusk and a sea cucumber and...
Chum: You know for a clown fish, he's not that funny.

could be spaghetti worms. They live in the sandbed also.

Agree, I have them too. They seem to dig small mounds and sprout out through them.
