And this one i could see swimming on the top of the container after i rinsed the corals. i believe i saw others dead they are very small and have a white or clear body with a black ball like end im assuming is the head

Here it is straight

The first two pictures look like a Flatworm of some sort while the other two might be a baby bristle worm. (Dorvilleidae)

Thanks for the feedback.

I agree with it looking like a flatworm just unsure if it's a bad kind or not? Odd it came off an acan or small chalice. I dont think flat worms bother lps but i could be wrong
