We noticed this guy coming out from some live rock. He looks like a blueish-grey earthworm with a retracting fan-like mouth.about the size of a skinny earthworm. Any idea what it is? Looks like nothing I've found on Google (bristle worm, Medusa worm, syllia worm,etc.) Thanks! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170629/0acc8fc6714c2c2bdf8921f9fe7708e4.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170629/df0d45f22866d02a1bb8205b1de04565.jpg

I'd say medusa, but those usually have fatter, more bulbous tentacles. It's tough to tell from the pic, but it seems like those tentacle look as fine as a fan worms', right?

It's like a mini feather duster worm at the end. Many others have said it's a peanut worm.
