It's a different, but closely related whiteworm.  Still good food for your 
fish if you can get it into a harvestable form, but it's not microworms.  
There's bunches of different nematode-type critters out there, and some of 
them are harmful to crops, so don't mention this to any farmers you may have 
an aquaintence with.
