Sorry if this is the wrong area to post this, it's my first time posting here and I figured.... eh, worms are inverts, right?
I recently planted a 37g and all was well. I was watching and relaxing when I saw what I thought was a stray piece of root floating about... until it started wriggling. Furiously. I'm talking, first-metal-concert-having-the-time-of-his-life type wriggling; clearly it wasn't just a weird flow pattern. I'd estimate he's about 1/2" to 3/4" long and very thin. I managed to snap a few (awful) pictures when he was floating in front of a black background (heater). He eventually found his way back to the substrate. If anyone can ID and/or answer the following, I'd appreciate it:
1. Will he harm fish? I don't have any yet, so I guess now's the best time to figure that out!
2. Will he contribute significantly to the bioload? (My instincts tell me the answer is "he will when he reproduces" but it doesn't hurt to ask)
3. Will he harm plants?
4. If he's gonna cause problems, how do I get rid of him?
I'm willing to stock lightly to accommodate if necessary, but if they're going to hurt fish or plants I'm afraid I'll have to get rid of them. I'm honestly hoping to let the little guys party on.
Update: just saw one that's shorter, thicker, and pink.
