parasites?

I have a 29gal saltwater tank with 2 fish, 2 snails, and around 20lbs if LR. There are little white worms moving on the glass inside of the tank. Tried to take a pic, but they didn't turn out well. The worms are about 1/16 of an inch long. Some are smaller. If anybody has dealt with this PLEASE help me.

They are probably flatworms. the clear/whitish ones are harmless and will be there for a short time then die off.
