    Found this little guy on some Gracilaria that I bought. Any idea what it is? It's about an inch long

    After a little online research, I think it might be a Medusa worm, which is actually a type of sea cucumber.

    Medusa worm. I'd keep it removed from the tank. Can eat wastes and such, generally reef safe but it's one of those creatures that could possibly release toxins when killed or it dies so I'd personally just rather not risk it in the tank. Seen multiple reports of it getting in a powerhead and causing the tank to just be a graveyard.

    Thanks slug. I left him in the refugium
