There's no way of knowing what is in the water dish without seeing a picture. It could also be baby crickets, springtales, mites or fly larvae.

Yea, if you could get some close up shots of the worms. I have had baby phorid flies, springtails, and crickets breed in exhibits before. Hopefully its not nematodes.

Где ты Анастасия это всё увидела?
В каком магазине?

========
Translation from Russian: Where have You seen that. In which shop?
