sorry to sound rude but that pic is very hard to see clearly... perhaps resizing it or taking another would be more helpful....

You can see the picture alot better if you zoom out your browser to about 20%. You can see rocks and stuff but I can't see any fish.

looks like a worm to me they are typical hitch hikers on LR... i have not heard of any problems with them before.... i have a few and they tend to come out at night and eat stuff off the sand... the description of the other one sounds like a bristle worm and also not a major issue... if you end up with a large amount of them then you may be over feeding the tank .... oh and if you really feel the urge to remove a bristle worm do it with tweezers or tongs as the have quite a sting....

Im quite sure (from reading and viewing other pics on the web) that I have a peanut worm...kinda gross looking but eats a fair amount of detrius and seems to be largely harmless...I read that shinning a flashlight with a red filter on the lens at night is a great way to view your tank at night (and I might see even more stuff I didnt know I had)...
...the bristle worm (Im pretty sure its one of thoes that I have as well) seems to have differing opinions on its standing in a marine tank (aka is it good or bad)...Im not too concerned about the fish (it seems pretty slow) but I did read it was poisonus and can harm your corals, and should be removed...does this sound correct...
