what the heck was this?? (no pic)
 
i just got some more lr for my nano tank along with an anemone + clown fish, and when the light has been off for a while, i noticed this weirdo slime string coming off the rock with 2 appendages off the tip of it. I shined a light on it and it was apparently coming from the back of the rock and was roughly 4-5 inches long, and it retracted to the back of the rock. It looked greenish blueish and kinda softish. What the HECK was that?

All answers greatly appreciated.

it could have been, but it didnt have little hairs like that, and it kinda had a "split" at the end into 2 stubs.
