Filter feeding worms?

Hi so I have a lot of these worms which at night let out these 2” tentacles to feed. Should I be worried about how many I have or concerned about them damaging my corals?

That is the best photo I could get as one. As soon as you turn the lights on they retract and go away.

Spaghetti worms maybe? I have them in all my tanks. Never seem to hurt anything.

Right there in the black space. Still haven’t been able to get a definitive ID on what these might be.

Digitate hydroids. They are not worms.

Either or, don't really expect them to filter anything. They're just there.. (sometimes in masses)
