Any idea what type of worms these are?
These are big, in the gravel, red, wiggle a bit out of the gravel, planted tank.
I think those are tubifex worms.
They are harmless- but having so many is a sign that there is WAY too much food for them in your substrate. I'd clean out the gravel really thoroughly.
If you have large fish, the fish will eat them, but clearly no large fish in this tank or they'd be gone.
I'd suck them up with a gravel vacc where ever you can. They'll keep reproducing for a long time.
Unless their nastiness doesn't bother you that is!
Also, welcome to TFK! :-D
