Default Glass worms

I got some bags of daphnia and all 3 had some strange looking bugs in there. I was worried that they might be dragonfly larvae so I fished them all out and put them in a separate container. After some research, it looks likely that they are glass worms.

Now the question is - what to do with them?

Is it safe (and healthy) to feed them to paddle-tail newts? They are far too big to feed to the fire belly larva, as he is currently on daphnia and really tiny bloodworms.

Thanks Kaysie! I'll try putting some in with Imi and Rissi and see how they react to them :)
