Was it submerged under water? Cause if so it wasnt an earthworm. They can drown in a puddle. I dont know much about bloodworms though.

Blood worms are mosquito larvae, so I don't think it's that. I'm not sure what it is though.

it looks like a species of roundworm. if it is, treat your tank for internal parasites.. your fish won't survive them in their gut Sad
