Default Seachem Flourite

I got a bag of Flourite for my 20 gallon guppy breeder tank since I want to plant some bushy stems for baby hideouts, and decided to see what would happen if I dont wash it before putting it in the tank. As I am scooping from the bag I see a white worm about 2-3 inches long and about twice the thickness if the earthworms you see on your driveway after it rains. I should have taken a picture but I didn't think about it before I scooped it and flushed it down the toilet. Is this a common find in substrates?

*btw, after having to change the fine floss sponge filter on my HOB filter two days in a row, the filters are now clean and so is the water...it kind of makes me think that making a mess on the driveway washing substrate in the past was a waste of time

Was this from a sealed bag?

Should've kept it, maybe a super rare moth or something
