    Ok, so I turn my lights off last night to go to bed... I lay down and this little UFO starts darting around my tank like hummingbird on crack... I mean this thing was hella fast... I turn my lights back on and watch it for like a minute, then it gets sucked into my overflow... I dig it out of my overflow and grabbed my camera... I took a picture of this crazy little creature and put it back in my tank... Within a minute it got sucked into my fuge...I have no idea what this little thing was... The pics are not great, as I said this thing was knarly... The only way I could even begin to describe this thing is a cross between a worm, with centipede like tiny legs... What the heck was this thing..... Thanks in advance....

    Just so you know, all of the stringy things in the first pic is actually polyester threads, as when he went into my overflow I had to take a pair of tweezers and cut a section out... He was a worm like thing about a 1/4" long...
