    I just found this in my tank. It was swimming irradically and super fast. It is blue under good light. Any idea on what it is. I assumed its bad and yanked it out.

    Almost looks like a meal worm. I'm guessing it's some kind of Polycheate ( yes I know it's spelled wrong ).

    It's the same thing, in the water it looks blue. I don't think I will be putting it back in the tank.

    A free swimming worm would make me guess polychaete too....try looking here and see if you can find it.
