Hi everybody. I'm brand new here. I just found these guys in my dwarf purple isopod culture. These worms are super small, kind of white/translucent, and they are pretty wiggly. Are these nematodes, or the dreaded nemerteans? Sorry for the bad quality video. I got as close as I could. Thanks!

Greetings,

Your video is too small to get a clear id but it is good enough to rule our terrestrial flatworms (true nemerteans are very uncommon viv pests).

From the motion I could see, they look like nematodes. They could possibly be fly larva or annelids but I tend to think nematodes.

Well that is relieving if their movement looks like nematodes! I read that nemerteans aren't often found in groups. In my case, there are a bunch lumped up together in pretty close proximity.
