I have a 29 gallon salt water aquarium. I have about 5 or so lbs of live rock, clown fish, damsels, and a feather duster. I have not purchased anything new for my aquarium in a good 3 or 4 months, and have had the aquarium for about 7. I looked into my aquarium the other morning and noticed this weird parasite or worm looking critter swimming around. It has hair like things on its body that it uses to swim around. It's mostly white but has a hint of pink on the hair like things. It's about 2 or 3 inches long and very thin. On the tip of it, it appears as though it has 6 eyes, but some could just be dots. It does have dots runnig in a line on either side of its body. It is much like a worm and if anyone could help me figure out what it is I would greatly appreciate it. It is no longer in my aquarium, but I would like to know if I need to look out for anything or have info for the future. Thank you for your time.
