I got worms

Actually I don't but I was wondering: in addition to MTS, are there freshwater worms that exist for planted aquaria? It seems they might be useful in a sandy, enriched substrate.

No one? really? I thought for sure there were some geeks out there that had little worm farms in their substrate. I just feel that the more bio-diverstiy, the better especially in regions of the aquarium that are typically uninhabited (and especially when in nature they are full of life).

Not on purpose, at least not that I know. Nematodes can show up in droves under certain conditions if your fish are not too keen on them. Others have had uneaten blackworms hang out. I had leeches in one tank at one point, and that was where I drew my biodiversity line in the Moon sand.
