Ah, very nice. Great colors and clarity. I am fond of the worms, I have hundreds now in my aquarium. :)

Jacek,

Looks very close to something I photographed a few years ago, and some of our knowledgeable members provided ID:
This is a Diptera larva... a biting midge from the family Ceratopogonidae, and a member of the Bezzia genus.
Have a look here and see if you think it is the same critter...
