Larvae ID - Bloodworm??

Recommended Posts

Hi all. So today I was doing some maintenance on my patio pond and testing out a pump to siphon water out. I found these guys in the pump’s strainer afterwards. They were alive and much smaller than the frozen bloodworms I feed my indoor fish. Are these “free fish food”?  First season with a “pond”. Pond is 100 gallons with two comets.

I found a bunch of them earlier this spring when I was cleaning out a tub that had sat all winter.  There were quite a few in the leaf litter at the bottom.  When I'd find one I'd drop it in the adjoining tub with a few mature guppies.  As you can imagine, they didn't last long.
