Trying to id a worm for somebody else, I think I may have id mine. Its looks a lot like a dorvilleidae worm (https://singapore.biodiversity.online/species/A-Anne-Polychaeta-000046)

 

"Members of this family are much smaller than most of the more larger, visible families and pose no real threat to other life in our aquariums. They will appear as very small white lines on the glass of our aquariums and are very common. Each specimen that I have examined under a microscope appears to be gut loaded with algae. While a good many species are extremely small, there are of course much larger species, some of which have been reported up to three inches long. " (https://chucksaddiction.thefishestate.net/hitchworms.html)

 

youpi 🎉🎉
