Sorry. I'll bump you up. Are there many of them? Can you get some better pics?

I've only seen the one so far, and it got caught in the water column when I tried to catch it. I'm afraid it's something that will eat my Coral

Chances are it's fine, I would keep an eye out for it again. Watch your corals, if it's hanging out on them then I would pull it. If you see it again and it's just in the sand or on the rock or glass, I wouldn't worry too much. But if you don't like it and can grab it, pull it if it makes you feel better. I use my turkey baster to suck critters out. It seems to work better than tongs, a net or paper towels.

That's definitely a spaghetti worm, not a nudibranch. They are harmless dritivores.

Thank you. That's a relief
