Weird String Like Creature - PICTURE

Hello All,

This thing is weird.

It has been moving around my tank for several days. I'm currently letting the tank cycle.

This thing has moved around several times!

Here is the picture:

It makes a loose "S" in the picture.

any ideas as to what this is?

Hi Justin.

Any more pictures? I'm not sure what I am looking at.

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

First guess is you are looking at the sticky substance emitted from Vermatid worms. Another possibility would be a medussa/spaghetti worm. Basically it's a worm of some sort.
