I have a small goldfish pond in my backyard. Yesterday, as I lifted a plastic container 
out of my pond (it 
had originally held a plant, which had floated out of it)I noticed a brown cord woven 
through part of the 
container. It was about 7 inches long, and almost as thick as a kite string (but not 
quite that thick). 
At first I thought it was a cord I had used to tie the plant to the container, but it started 
moving. What kind 
of worm could this be? Is it some sort of parasite? Is there anywhere on the web that 
has pictures to help 
me identify this creature?
