There is a website where a person had a 6' one in his reef (accidently brought in on live rock.) Here is the web address:

if possible i would get another tank for it and experiment to find out what it is what it does and how big it really gets. Thats what i would do if i found anything over a foot long in my tank that i didn't put there. At the least you could be like "Look at this thing i found" after showing off your display.

How long did it take to work up enough nerve to reach in after that thing?

Are these types of worms common to show up?

Good identification/worm information sites:

A lot of folks have 10 - 14" worms in their tanks without problems...
