Video: Worm in plants?

Hello guys and gals,

Today I was doing some scaping of my tanks and I uprooted some C. Wendtii so it could be moved to another tank.
Before I put it into my other tank I checked it of any snails or javamoss. While checking I saw a brownish thing that looked like a small root, then I remember that Crypt roots are normally white, so I pulled it and it started moving. IT WAS A SMALL WORM!!!.
It basically looked kind of like an earthworm but very small, I threw him out, but I was wondering if he was a danger to my plants or fish, and where could it of came from???


Here is a video of the worm, kind of bad since it was a small little worm, plus bad camera lol.

I doubt that it was harmful. I honestly can't tell what kind of worm it is from the video.

Yeah I know like I said bad video, just seeing if anyone knew anything about it, looks like a very small earth worm. Just confused about how he got in there.

Yeah a little hitch hiker is all i can guess. You should have kept it in a small jar or something so you could eximan it or just keep it for a while and see if it gets any bigger so you can see it better.

I'm betting it wasn't worth the effort. In my house it would have been eaten by a cat anyway.
