looks like an AMEBA.. what is it?

i found a few ameba looking things crawling on my tank this morning. after turning the lights on they disappeared within a few mins. What are they? I cant attach pic.. file is to big. It looks like an ameba that we learned about in biology.. if anyone can help me, i can gladly mail it to you.

thanks!!!!

IMO, all flat worms have the potential to be detrimental, simply from unchecked multiplication. They will eventually chocke the animals you want to keep.
