    ive had some anarchis from my pond sitting in a bag to give my frogs some cover when i finally put them into their five gallon. i didnt notice until i put the plants into the tank that there are little red worms swimming all about in the bucket i cleaned them in, and a couple made it into the tank.. they look exactly like the frozen bloodworms i feed them, could that be what they are? is it possible to be anything dangerous? should i dump the tank water and redo it?

    Those look like bloodworms. However, if you see red worms hanging out of your fish, those are camallanus worms and require immediate treatment with Levamisole HCL.

    so since they came from my pond and probably not out of a fish, it should be fine to put them back into the tank? i took my ADFs out the second i saw them. or do you think i should refill it for good measure?

    Follow whatever makes you feel the safest. Those look harmless.
