Striped Worm?

There appears to be 2-3 inch worm looking thing in my tank that has black stripes and is grayish. Any ideas on what it is or if its bad? Almost looks like a snake only its small. Pics below

Its hard to tell if thats it or not. I went to the link and the colors look similar but its more long like a worm and moves around like a worm.

Yeah, this is what i would do. Put some food or something in the tant that it would like to eat, and then wait until it comes out and observe it. Really the only way to get the best view of it, to truly identify it.
