Description

Originally I thought these were Annelida since that's originally what we were trying to scoop out of the pond, but these seem to be covered in cillia. These are rather large compared to most I'm use to seeing.

each segment seems be approximately 100-120 microns in length.

Its easier to digest this organism with this video of it:

Description from Wikipedia

The ciliates are a group of protozoans characterized by the presence of hair-like organelles called cilia, which are identical in structure to eukaryotic flagella, but typically shorter and present in much larger numbers with a different undulating pattern than flagella. Cilia occur in all members of the group (although the peculiar Suctoria only have them for part of the life-cycle) and are variously used in swimming, crawling, attachment, feeding, and sensation.
