What are these? Bloodworms?

I recently had a 300 gallon vat full of Plecos crash in the cold here in Florida. I drained the vat but have not yet cleaned it. Today I see red worms which are 1/4 to 1/2 inch in size all over. Are these bloodworms? Good live fish food?

Here is an out of focus photo.

I am not an expert but to me it looks like bloodworms and they are very good food for your fish :)

They look like blood worm to me too.
Blood worms are great fish food like already mentioned. They are the most common used to help treat many diseases and are used to try to help treat 'bloat' (please people, correct me if I'm wrong about this)

You might be thinking of daphnia for the bloat. It's a good digestive for fish.

Bloodworms are a good source of protein but I don't think they do anything to help or prevent diseases.
