Parasite?

My tank has been running 3 weeks with live rock in it. This morning, I turned the light on and there was about a 3 inch worm scaling the front of the glass. All around this worm were tons of little white specks scaling the glass as well. They are visibly moving around. We removed the large worm but the smaller specks are still there. What are these things and are they parasitic?
