Ther are detrivors/filterfeeders. Not good or bad, just are.

the worms don't need light, thier filter feeders, try to provide moderate to high water flow, and feeding them plankton will help when the "nets" are out, but in a healthy tank feeding should be unnecisary but helpful. calcium should also help growth because of thier shells, but again they will grow in a healthy tank without any extra supplements.
