Plant & "worm" IDs

OK so I bought this plant a while back and the lfs told me it was h. polysperma and I though it could be since Tropica says their leaves can look different depending on light. But this isn't actually hygro is it? Bacopa maybe?



The veins and newer leaves are red/brown.


(excuse the glare)

And I found these worm type things in casings in a container with soil substrate. They wiggle around building those casings and then they disappear but I don't know where to. The container is sealed and I can't seem to find them. I was just curious. Maybe my gups could make a snack out of them

Ah yes thanks, I think that's it. I looked at bacopa carrolineia on Tropica but wasn't sure. I just searced for it and saw it on Dennerle and it looks just like it. Anyone know what those worm-like critters are?
