Strange situation

This is the only time this has happened - the tank has only been set up for about 5 days now.

It's a 125 with 80 lbs LR and CC substrate. After watching the tank all day with lights on, I turned the lights off. Came back maybe ¬Ĺ hour later, turned on the light and there appeared to be maybe 10-15 white worms buzzing about the tank. I'm pretty sure they were worms, and the fish were quite excited by this.

What were these worms?

It wasn't these guys was it? I've gotten almost a dozen out of my tank so far. I've been using a turkey baster to suck them up when I see them on the glass. http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2002-05/rs/index.htm

Nope, bfo, they were very simple small white worms that twisted and turned like crazy as the current carried them around. The fish were curious, but wouldn't eat them.

They're not pods. They may be flat worms, which are undesirable but it is hard to say w/o a pic. Try doing a search.

Actually they sound like epitokes, the offspring of bristleworms through mass spawning.

Cheers
