Have you tested your water?
Yes
If I did not test my water...
...I recognize that I will likely be asked to do a test, and that water tests are critical for solving freshwater health problems.
Do you do water changes?
Yes
If I do not change my water...
...I recognize that I will likely be recommended to do a water change, and water changes are critical for preventing future freshwater health problems.

I personally never seen or heard of a detritus worm that large. I would definitely remove that from the aquarium.

Looks like a round worm. I’d keep an eye on the fish for a bit.

Do you feed earthworms to your fish? A few years ago I had something very similar in my stingray tank. I figure that the stingrays didn’t like it and spit it back out.
