what is this thing? green alien looking monster

Hey,
Yet another un-identified thing in my 3gal. yellow green in color, 1/2 inch long, cruising pretty quick across the glass, lots of tentacles, looks like thread. See pic, if he must die please tell me quick, as he is in plain view at the moment.
thanks as always.

Yeah I discovered a hitchhiker in my 3 gal today. But, it's not alien looking like yours. Mine was an apistatia. Yours looks thin like spagetti worms.

Sorry to hear about aptasia, seems to be some good remedies for that though, I am willing to bet most hobbyist find aptasia at one point or another. you are getting your over with now
I just read about spaghetti worms, don't see like a bad inhabitant, so i guess he will live, it is his lucky day !, unless other opinions here change my mind.
anyone ?
