I'd look up worms on the internet and see if you can find a pic that id's them. I've seen a few worms in my tanks and never had issues. Hydras are common, but they're translucent and look like tiny sea anenomies on tiny stalks, and they never bothered my aquariums either.

I'd say planaria but they're usually a sign of excess organic matter. ... ble_p2.htm
