Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated Palaimon!

these will give you a nasty sting though be carefull, they are a problem in aquariums stowing away in live rock and devestating the tank, killing fish and all sorts!!

It's what's known as a polychaete, a type of annelid worm. Another example of an annelid would be an earth worm or leech. Polychaete's date back to the Cambrian explosion making them some of the oldest extant multi-cellular organisms on the planet and one of the most diverse and abundant class of organisms in the ocean.
