Caught a look at it after dark and it was extended out about 3Ē from the sand When extended it for sure looked like a bristle worm

10 years ago when I first ran this tank bristle worms were bad and you had to get rid of them. Now Iím reading that they are good ??

For the most part I’ve always thought they were beneficial. Some say they aren’t when they get big. Others say when in doubt take it out. Me personally, just a small irritation if I brush up against them so they don’t bother me

Tiny Snails or Worm?

Can anyone tell me what this is? It is very small and crawling on the glass.

Some kind of snail, flat shell on top that he cannot retreat into, only hide under. He only comes out once my white lights start dimming in the evening sequence Anyone ID it ?

A stomatella- a fine addition to your clean-up crew. Essentially, they're snails with tiny little "half" shells. They can move surprisingly fast.

I have 3 of these that I have found so far. Basically clear with black banding, looks a lot like a super small brittle star kinda. Very long arms protruding from rock

Yep, probably a mini brittle star. May never get any bigger. I had a bloom of them once.
