Im wondering if its normal to find things in the substrate, on 2 occasions iv found a red leach type creature in my bucket after a water change, and i noticed today a white worm type creature pop up and back down again after my betta tried to get it.

Im curious as to whether theyr harmless or should be removed

I have no idea the harm the tubifex worm could be, however I will say this, it is sold as fish food in many places as both frozen and freeze dried.

Can you get a picture of either?
