White Worm/slug like things bunny ears with mosquito larvae

I decimated the mosquito population in that little 20 gallon tub of water.

I think I grossed about 400 today, but noticed some weird looking white slug like things. At the end section whatever it's called, they have these bunny type ears, but it doesn't seem like they use them to move around.

Can't really get a good picture of them, but what do you think they might be?

Should I remove them or pour in boiling water and par cook them before I feed the girls?

I'll upload a picture in a few minutes.


Also they're about the size of full grown mosquito larvae before the go to the pupae stage?

Also they move very fast, like a slug on speed.

If no one here can help, try googling worms or aquatic/pond bugs in your area if they are outside. It might take you a few hours but you can probably figure out what they might be.

Thanks. It's one of those days where I can't think of the right term to search for.

I just need to cap the little tank in case some of the mosquitos morph.

It's not a bug, some sort of worm/slug critter.

I gotta make some lunch first.

Fish will eat almost anything, but I don't want to feed them something that might be known to harbor parasites.

I froze them anyway. Going to pour in some boiling water in the container before I drop it in the tank.

can't quite tell, but it could be a flatworm.
