it maybe some type of aqatic living insect larva,or possibly a leech planaria move constantly and wouldnt stay put
look closely at it and see..
how does it move?
is it segmented or smooth?
does it have any legs?

It was so small I couldn't even see if it had legs or anything, it was tiny.
It zig zagged almost like a snake does but it didn't move anywhere it stayed put in one spot.
I do not see it anymore however? That is very interesting....

Yeh we are talking about the tank in my sig. I see the worm in there again. It was behind another piece of eel grass earlier but I see it again now.

It's weird, it almost looks like it is inside the piece of grass, like in between 2 layers? I'm not sure though but that's what it looks like. Should I just cut this blade out??

I got rid of it a few days ago. That thing was weird, it didn't squirm at all after I took it out of the water. Well at least it's gone now!
Thanks for the advice!
