not sure if this goes here but....

This is weird, I bought a few plants from that fish place when I was there yesterday, I am watching my fish and I notice something that looks like a piece of string or root, upon closer inspection this "worm" is actually swimming in my tank. Any ideas what it could be and should I remove it?

You bought plants from that fish place. If it's not the name of the store most people use local fish store or LFS.

It looks about 2-4 mm long, but its free swimming and not on the glass does that mean its a nematode?
