    Ummmmm.... can you post a picture? That'd make ID's better than crazy yellow thing a tad bit easier...

    Sounds like a type of cuke(does it have a "featherduster-type face) or a bristle worm.
    There's nowhere else I'ld rather be... unless, of course, you're buying

    I was going to say it sounds like a sea cucumber also. It may have hitchhiked in on something you purchased recently. If it is, this a good guy! It's a detrius eating machine and will grow quite large literally eating all the crap laying around in your tank. His deposits will be a white silt like material that goes right back to the sand bed nice and clean. I hope this is what he turns out to be! Post a picture for us to identify him for ya!! ....Angel

    I don't think its a bristle worm. i believe he hitch hiked on a rock of brown polyps i bought from "a world of fish" right next to the mall of America favorite fish store in the world. and they don't carry anything but aquatics. but i am sorry for the delay on the pic but i will get one... i haven't seen him for a couple of days i wondering if my coral angel ate him or if hes just in the sand but ill post a pic when i catch him out and about
