Worms in my tank?

I recently started up a planted tank (I'd call it an NPT, but I don't think it's heavily planted enough), and I've noticed some black worms swimming around in there. Could anyone guess what they are?

Could they have come from the soil? I used Miracle Gro Organic Garden Soil.

Or could it have come from the plants? I received them from someone from another forum.

Ew, I have no idea what that could be. o.O Doesn't look like anything that would normally be found in a tank though.
I'd just take them out of the tank and hope more don't pop out.

It's probably some sort of larvae or something that came with the plants. I recently ordered plants on someone from another forum and now my tank has dragonfly nymphs in it. -____- I'm not sure what it is, but your best bet is to remove them like Olympia said.
