Am I lucky or what? LOL
I noticed some weird red worms wiggling in one of my tanks gravel.
This morning I siphoned that area and isolated some of them to look for some info.

It looks like they are blood worms and my question is:
Could they be "unfrozen" worms? I mean, I feed my fish blood worms often and wonder if these could be like "Demolition Man"

Also, the dirty water that came out with them was stinky as **** :yuck:
I should bother my vallisnerias a little more because I usually skip their surroundings to avoid messing up their roots and that's ehere these disgusting guys were hiding.

I've read these are actually larvae from another bug?
Good Lord, the tank is in my bedroom LOL Help! :hungover:

They look a little too long and skinny to be blood worms, but I've only ever seen the frozen cubes thawed out. I'm leaning towards larvae of some kind, but I don't know which. I'll try and do some digging for you.

I found you this:
