Uneaten Blackworms

Is there anything wrong with leaving uneaten blackworms in your tank? They tend to burrow down into the substrate; and are picked off occasionally.

Do they eat plant roots or bulbs?

No problem - just let em do their thing. Cleanest food you can get IMO. Never makes a mess or fouls the water.
