Thin transparent tentacles on Live Rock?

Hey whats up, i usually don't post here.. i mainly just browse these forums for more things to learn about saltwater tanks. Right now I just have 2 damsels and a peppermint shrimp with about 30 pounds of live rock in my 55 Gallon tank. But somethings bothering me.. I have quite a few of these long thin white/transparent tentacles throughout my tank in poking out through my live rock. I have no idea what it is, and i have been trying to look it up for the past few days. i give up googling, I know they aren't brittle stars because i found out i had 2 in my tank a month ago.

Thanks Teck, I have no idea either.. it may be a tube worm but im honestly lost! It couldn't be aptasia, because i dont see any of the brown like on Thincats posted website. + My Peppermint would've ate it like my transparent brown aptasia right?

The only thing i see similar to this is the SPIONID WORMS but whatever it is in my tank is not circular shaped like these. I have alot on one of my rocks, and just 1 poking out on another one, that i can see.

Whatever it is, It wont move when i hit it with my fingers..its soft. I was thinking, if its a living worm it would bury itself in the rock right? I had on aqua gloves of course, but they also have pointed ends..the spinoids have circular ends right? I googled them, i see similarities...but i still can't tell exactly.

But this is all new to me, im still learning and i know alot but things covering and on my live rock confuse me! I still don't know what those pink circular indentions are in my live rock pictured with the unknown transparent creatures.
