Drain Fly Larvae Found in Snail Clutch

“I purchased mystery snails and one laid a clutch”, writes Jessica about the black, worm-like critter pictured below, as well as the clear-white objects, also pictured below. “Well, I thought it was hatching last night, and these tiny shell-less, slug-like, tiny, black worms were inside. Only like five of them, but they have antennae and kinda the same ribbed look as the snail’s siphon. They kinda move in an ‘inch worm motion’. Not sure if they prefer water habitats, but they are inside an empty aquarium and seem to be able to survive and swim. Are these the newborn snails? They don’t look like them, because they have no shell.”
