Possible Eunice & Slug thing :)

Have had my tank fallow for a few weeks now due to something nasty on my fish, and the whole tank seems to be coming alive with the absence of those hungry mouths lol

Can anyone tell if this thing is a Eunice worm??
Sorry for the poor pics





It is about 5-6 mm in diameter and seemed like it was quite long, although i only actually saw 2.5-3" of it. Got a good look at the mouth though - looked like the thing that ate Boba Fett .


Then!

This thing slid up the back wall of the tank!




Looks like a slug, with a raised section that is slightly different in colour to the rest of its body. It is also quite fast too, about the same speed as a Nassarius snail on a mission

Again, apologies for the crappy photos,


Thanks in advance!
