Weird bug thing

I have noticed that after I vacuum the gravel in my tank it has these little white 1/4" or so fine hair like things swimming around. I took them to petsmart and they said they where good for my tank. I want to know what they are because they bug me lol. Theres about 10 or 15 that I have seen.

Sounds like planaria. Cut back on feeding and do gravel vacs more often. They will go away on their own. They will not hurt your fish.
