It's body goes into the rocks. It looks like a earth worm in size and shape but smaller. It's def not a fish.

YES it does move, but it nots moving like a "creature" like I originally thought it was. Is a tube worm a parasite? coral? Im a rookie here ...

Nah its just a little flower like dude that lives in a tube. Haha they are filter feeders and are super common. Not a parasite at all... Just a cool hitch hiker dont worry about it haha

And thats my black clown hosting my green bubble tipped anemone
