Wild Worm???
Hi, I found this ugly guy under my return pump today. I looked for an ID but found nothing. Anyone know of it? It has spikes all over and suckers for a mouth it looks in the second photo.

Its not a polycheate.

Given its sucker mouth and spiked appearance, I would say this is some sort of sea cucumber. Tiny version. Looks similar to tiger tail sea cucumber. Great cleaners.

Thanks, I think you right with it being a cucumber. Hope it gets colour as it grows. The good quality live rock delivers again.

Sea Cucumber. Great sand cleaners. BTW the spikes are soft, I pick mine up to move them out the way when I vacuum the sand. My largest is 30cm long. It was longer but split into two. The clone is about 10cm long.
