I would avoid adding any chemicals to your water in order to eliminate your pests.

If you do not know what it is, there is really no point in adding things to your aquarium.

Manual removal is probably the best way to go for now.

sounds a lot like the larvae of mothflies/drainflies. they live on decaying matter in water. hard to get rid of once they invade your house as they will reproduce down on the gunk in the drain pipes also.

do they look something like this?
