WHAT IS THIS WEIRD... Worm?

Hi guys,

Hopefully one or some of you can help me figure out just ehat the heck this weird creature is. It looks like a clear worm with feather like tentacles coming out of the front. NOT LIKE A FEATHER DUSTER. It can stretch out very long, moves around using these weird tentacles. Thus far I have seen no reason to renove it, it just crawls in and out of the rocks.

Google has done me no justice as this thing is hard to describe. I attached a photo of it, it may be kind of hard to see, I had to zoom in to really get it.

Does not seem to be worm. But a hydroid of some sort.

It looks more like a Peanut worm to me.
