I took in an african sideneck turtle a while back, he was living in some guys sink :/

Anyway, while doing a water change today we noticed small brown to black worms in the water, almost leach like, any thoughts?

He seems to be doing well, in a 75 gallon w/ basking spot under his heat light, UV, water heater, filter all that good stuff. Eats well (mostly aquatic turtle diet, w/ some treats), active little guy, we have him in the living room he is so full of personality!

We put a couple in a jar, will try to get pics/video latter, but wanted to hop on here while I had a sec

If I cant figure it out I'll try to get a "fecal" done on some of his water to see if that will help w/ ID

Thanks!
