wondering if that's what these are.

I have found two different types of aquatic earthworms. The first is a
smallish - 2" long or so worm that looks much like a regular earthworm only a
little 'tanner' colored and then the 3-4" type found in the mud of moderately
swift streams with anacharis. I find them in the roots of the anacharis as I
uproot it and they have kind of a florescent blue color under sunlight. Fish
appear to eat the first kind of worm rather readily while they are a little
cool on the longer worms.
