when i first glanced i thought you had gotten a pygmy octopus

never seen anything before like it unless its a larger bristle or a medusa worm. it does look alot like the first link but ofcourse its "unidentified"

what does its head/tail look like? does it appear to have bristles like the standard old bristle worm?

It would be un-ID'd when i actually need it eh?

In the first pic you can see the tail. I don't see a mouth like a normal bristle or medusa

there is a really good hitcher ID site somewhere that has a section for worms and includes many many kinds.. ill see if i can find it

Perfect... Let me know. I put this guy into a 10g tank with SW and see what he does.
