Did that come out of a betta? And are you sure it was alive at one time? It could be a poo.

I thought there was a worm in my tank when I got my first betta and it freaked me out a bit. Some poop a little cinnamon bun looking thing.

Eeeeewww! That rules that out then.

Can you provide more details? Did you introduce new fish, gravel, or plants to the tank before you found this wormy thing?
