    Hey guys,

    Ive been doing a major cleaning of my tank, when i was cleaning out the sand i found this weird worm type thing inside the sand. Does anyone have any idea what this is? Should also note that this had been soaking overnight in a bleach and water solution, so this might not be how it originally looked. Picture to follow:
    Thanks

    That is a peanut worm. They are really gross and creepy looking, but they are harmless and reef safe. They are quite common to find as hitch hikers in rock and sand.

    Welcome... and... that's gross. I hate tank worms. Even though most are good/neutral. ;)
