They came from outerspace

Hey guys --
I have had my planted tank for approximately 9 months. Today when I did my Filter cleaning and water change, I found worms in the bottom the canister. I have not seen worms in the tank. Nor have they been in the filter before. I have not added anything to the tank in a while and the only thing I have changed about my routine is I am now dosing potassium and phosphorus. Any one know where they could have come from? And will they cause a problem if there are more I did not see?

Thanks everyone,

I had a filter filled with those once. As far as I know mine were some kind of nematode. I pulled the floss out to clean it and suddenly the tank was filled with them. The fish ate well that day... would be nice if I could figure out how to keep growing them.
