What the heck is sticking out??

Hey guys.
I just went to go do a water change on my depressed male Akio when I saw something sticking out the soil? (which is why the water is cloudy - excuse that)
I just put this soil/dirt stuff in last night so I'm not sure if I got a 'prize inside' here.
The water has no filter or air stone (turned that off last night so I could plug a light in) and this thing is swaying back and forth (Don't ask me to touch it. I'm not going near it until I know what it is. I can take a something and pull it out if need be..lol)

Its actually grossing me out here..
here's a pic..
Is this some sort of ugly worm?

It doesn't help that sponge-bob is talking about a massive worm on tv right now. I think I'm going to be sick.

No idea, but I would take some tweezers & pull it out.

I dont think its a worm. Youre using potting soil, you mean? Theres lots of organic stuff in there.

I think this was just a root to my bamboo plant. It freaked me out moving around.. I have no idea how it would if the water was still.
But anywho..I took it and moved it to the side. If it moves again - its on.
