Since were talking about aliens

Can anyone help me ID the creature in my tank. I noticed it a week or two ago. I assumed it was a larvae or worm of some kind. It doesn't move it just sits there. Could it just be a plant stem?

It's right below the yellow fish.

Right under the yellow fish there is a small 1" clear tube sticking out of the substrate. It has some kind of matter in it at the tip of the tube (the yellow stuff). I have no idea if it's alive, or just a leftover plant stem.

I vote for a plant stem. I know this is probably self evident but I need to up my post count.
