Planaria is the most common one that pops up so that's the first I'd rule out but they are lots of worms which are indistinguible from each other without a picture.

I've got some sort of earthworm (jim) living in my tank, must have been in the tropica soil. It's a purple-ish colour and is a decent size, i guess he/she is aerating the substrate for me.

I've used a few different meds in the tank to treat any fish ailments that have come up and it's survived all of them so far.
