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

Well, here's another picture...

Oh yeah, it's not responding to my poking so it might be dead... Although it changed positions from last night so...


It's definitely alive because when I dunked it in the water, it started moving!
Put it in the water long enough, probably not going to move anymore…
