Small Brown toast creatures

I have a bunch of small creatures that are shaped like pieces of toast. They are the size of a pin head. They spend their time in the left front corner of my tank. Anyone know what they are?

There is too much blue to be able to see anything. Could you try using just the camera flash? Often that is good enough to light up some things very well.

Ok, you can see the brown spec here. It's shaped like a piece of bread/toast. They're brown and have a teeny tiny tail. I just saw one move. It turned like a slug.

Flatworms but I'm almost positive they are not the bad ones.

Look like flat worms. If they bad, kinda depends. If they are just on the glass, probably just algae eaters and might die off. If they show up on coral then you will have to treat or get a fish that eats them.

Hard to tell. Most likely some kind of flat worm. Check out an Acoel flatworm, that's one possibility.
