Default Tiny red worm like things

Looking at my sump this evening and noticed the tiniest of tiny little red specs on the glass! I used my magnifying loupe and they appear to be long thin red things, like tiny caterpillars they seem to slither around the side panes! They are thin and the same width from tip to tip! That is about all I can say anyone any idea what they might be! I could not get a photo as they are about a 20th in size of a small copepod! They don't appear to be flatworms either!

Hi Jimmybigguns
What type of live rock do you have in the sump?
Take some system water out in a white bucket, and take the live rock out too. Shake the live rock a few times in that water and from there probably you could take some pictures.
Are they moving fast?

I had a piece of live rock in my sump which I was given as pest free to avoid unwanted guest in my main display! I put it there to observe before it went into the main tank to seed but wanted to be certain, but I took it out a few days ago and binned it as there some white flatworms appearing! Now i've noticed these red things! The closest thing I can find online is this post saying they are possibly Cilates! http://www.marinebreeder.org/forums/...t=6592&p=61845

They don't move fast that I can tell they are so small they may be moving fast in relation to thier size!
