worm info

hey all,Today when I got home from work a strange worm thing was crwling from on rock to another.When I went to get pic my camera flickers before it shoots and it went back in the rock but I seen it and try to describe.It was long and round smooth clearish tan with orange splotches and the head was flat with a white spot in center and no hair or antenas.Looks kinda like a bubble anenome tenticle in color and white where the stinger would be and was about 4 inches long Id say.I deff know this is not a bristleworm.I would also say looks kinda like a earth worm.Anyone seen anything like this desciption or know of a good aquarium worm page?

I waited till my lights went out and there it was.It seems it does not squirm out like the bristleworms it extends or rolls itself out from the center.basically the outter part i am seeing is the inner when hiding if this makes sense.I am still tring to get a good pic.
