Looks like a bristlworm to me. Usually a common scavenger that cleans up detrius, and is perfectly safe under 4-5".

You are correct Cody. Good advice as well. Rhines, contrary to what many believe, these worms are very beneficial to your system. They are excellent scavengers that will help take care of animal and invert carcasses that may go unnoticed behind your rockwork.
