I was looking into my tank at all the wonderful baby snails and the fish, until I spotted a long slender object. It was brownish/grayish, and it crawled much like a worm or a caterpillar. I was a bit scared that it would do something to my fish so I reached my hand in and mashed it really hard with my finger against the glass until it floated away into the water flow.

Should I be worried about this?

sound like tubiflex?? worms

i usually get that with bad water and dirty water and dirty gravel
My water has been a bit dirty lately, haven't had the time to keep up with filter cleaning and water changes. There seems to be a bunch of brownish specks in the water that attach to the leaves, thermometer, glass, etc.
