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
