A few hours ago I was watching my tank, and this white worm-like creature came out from the rock. It disappeared quickly after I tried to get a closer look. It just came out again, and spit some red stuff into the tank, and then vanished again. What could it be?

I think I have some of those too. I'm a little paranoid after hearing stories about bristle worms. What are these?

Sounds like a peanut worm. Could also be a spaghetti worm but not as likely. Both harmless, as are bristleworms.

Cheers
