Hi - I recently purchased some utricularia bisquamata, sandersonii and livida and and placed them in a tray of water. However, a couple of days after doing this, I have started to notice about 20 or so small red worms about the thickness of a hair. I was wondering if these were tubifex worms and why they would have been in the pots? Also would these be damaging the plants or the plants eat the worms?
