what the heck is this?

Hey I was looking at my tank one day and saw this white worm in the tank. It looked like a regular worm just white. and when i found it, it was attached to the bottom with about of it buried in the gravel and the other sticking out just waving around. It was about 4 inches long and when i took it out it didnt want anything to do with me and wiggled around like a worm. So what is it?

oh and my power was off about 7 days bc of a snow storm. and that s when i saw it.

Is there anything missing or eaten in your tank? If there is a dead fish or something it might be a parasite. If there are chewed plants it might be a worm.

No i dont think so. I mean the power was out for 7 days so there wasnt any filtering system for 7 days. I just want to know what it was. This is the first time someone hasnt figured something out on this forum. I am stumped i just hope someone knows what it was

Do you have any brothers or sisters? The reason I ask is that maybe someone threw it in your tank as a practical joke. Just a thought...
