    What are these worms in my grindal worm culture?

    Edit: Tryptophobia warning btw

    Background: these 2 cultures are soilless/dirtless and have been going on for a while. Recently, I set it up to basically have automatic water change with my 90g tank. Since then, the worm isn't doing too well and I see a lot of these much bigger worms pop up and crawling around now. If you can tell me what these are, please let me know, thank you!

    maggots are really good fish food if they can eat it.

    Thank you, I fed them to my fish and they chowed it down pretty quickly. The maggots are just a bit gross to think about I guess.
