Cable, those are blackworms in that betta bowl. I threw them in that dirt tank and they took off. I imagine it could be the same in your dirted tanks too. Lumbriculus come from swamps, in the silt...

This is true, there are very few mature blackworms, and as a result it is very difficult to tell any number of akin species apart. Wonder if I have to pinch them apart, or let the betta snap them to...

Is it going to be sunlit? I have found Rotala works well, maybe a red vallisneria would work well for you. Cryptocoryne balansae would look sweet too. Or some reddish stems? Those are all low light...
