Spaghetti worm most likely. I have a few of them in my sandbed and they create little ant-hill like mounds too. They're good. Just detrivores. They clean up your sandbed and remove/eat excess waste. Nothing to worry about.

If you don't like the look of them, or the number of them, just remove them. Siphon out the ones you don't want when you do your water changes.
