    I had simillar white worms in my tank a few weeks back. I'm pretty sure they came with some nice live rock I had just purchased.

    I don't think the rock was completely cured.

    Nonetheless, I picked one of the works out because I was completely grossed out. Looked like a slim long flagellan swimming in the tank.

    The second time I saw one I just left it. Figured the clown would eat it.

    It's been weeks since I've seen another white squiggly.

    I have also seen these TINY spaghetti like white worms on the glass of newly set up tanks I've done . If what your seeing in your tank are the same type of worms ... they seem to appear out of nowhere and multiply quickly. They have however disappeared as quickly as they appeared.
