It is a colony and they get there from people flushing them. they are used as live fish food for freshwater aquariums.
Here you go straight from the wiki:

Tubifex tubifex, also called the sludge worm, or sewage worm, is a species of tubificid segmented worm that inhabits the sediments of lakes and rivers on several continents. Tubifex probably includes several species, but distinguishing between them is difficult because the reproductive organs, commonly used in species identification, are resorbed after mating, and because the external characteristics of the worm vary with changes in salinity. These worms ingest sediments, selectively digest bacteria, and absorb molecules through the body wall.

The worms can survive with little oxygen by waving hemoglobin rich tail-ends to exploit all available oxygen. They can also survive in areas heavily polluted with organic matter that almost no other species can endure. By forming a protective cyst and lowering its metabolic rate, T. tubifex can survive drought and food shortage. Encystment may also function in the dispersal of the worm.

In 2009, colonies of tubifex worms were discovered in North Carolina sewer lines. Viral videos showing the colonies' blob-like appearance and individual worms resembling tentacles led to the speculation that they were some form of cryptid. [1][2][3] And they are very tall.

Please, please let's not have this whole argument again.

It's tubifex. Although, this is really some cool footage and until that video, there hadn't been many videos of organized colonies like that.

Almost all aquarium fish can. You could feed freeze dried tubifex to anything from a goldfish or guppies to a number of tropical fish. But not all fish like them. Depends on the fish and what it is used to eating. Some reptiles eat them, too.
