Unknown Worm In New Plants

I bought Monte Carlo off a seller on Facebook a few days ago but I hadn't gotten around to planting it yet because of the aquascaping I'm doing. While I was sleeping, my roommate noticed something moving inside the Ziploc bag and found two worms. This one and a smaller one. There may be more.

I have no idea what this is. It kinda reminds me of a ribbon worm but those are saltwater, aren't they? Will I have to do a colorox dip to get rid of all the worms?

EEEWWWW, that looks gross! Could it be a shovel-headed flatworm/roundworm?

Managed to get a video of it. They look more like red wrigglers. Detritus worms?

Thanks for the video but it is inside a bag so not a perfect view..

I'm not totally sure from what I can see but there are many relatives of earthworms which live in freshwater. These are harmless like normal earthworms and a normal part of the environment, though like algae and snails they may not be acceptable to you.
