I just found this purple worm/caterpillar in my fish tank. Also, one of my ghost shrimp was attempting to eat it when I found it. I have no idea where it could have come from... Can someone help me identify it? Also, it's around an inch long... Electric blue Insect Magenta Pattern Invertebrate

i saw some of those at a pet shop recently. they said they were hornworms. meant for feeding large lizards. the ones i saw were a blue / light blue / teal kind of color, but they were very similar to the one you posted.
could have hitched a ride from the petshop via some new driftwood or plants maybe (???)
