not sure kinda fuzzy pic, I would say maybe a hydroid or some thing like that. and the crawly thing with anetnna is just a worm of some sort. good sign

it looked more like a bug than a worm
i also have one of them a worm like thing that comes out of one of the rocks it slips back in when you put a light on it.

what is a hydroid?

Looks like some kinda soft coral.....as for the other thing that you couldnt pic....do you ever hear a clicking sound at night coming from the tank?
