    Question on some sort of slug(lives in the S/B)

    This thing is about the size of a wax crayon in length &
    diameter wise! when I picked it up from the sandbed it
    extends 4 little tenticles like feet or somthing out of 1 end
    of its boddy ,its sort of transparent in colour with white spots
    in lines on" its back" I'm presuming, & sortof brownish in colour.Seems to burrow into the sandbed ,ther is quite afew
    of these in the tank at present ,
    (Now keep in mind this is an established tank of almost 2yrs also)!
    Dose anyone have any ideas on what this may be?

    It sounds more like a species of cucumber,
    Is the under side flat where it glides like a slug or just completly round?

    This has no shell what so ever & it perfectly round tried to take a pic of it but didnt turn out so going to try again in the morning seems as soon as I get near the tank it draws itself back into the substraight .For a better description it just like
    a dew worm that youd use to go fishing with kind of an odd
    looking rig!&like I said earlier it has these 4 short tenticles
    that it reaches out with at the end of the torseau almost put you in mind of a star polup or somthing to that affect!
