Urgent-White worms

I noticed the other day I had a white worm half submerged in my water and today when I opened the lid to feed them I saw the whole lid was covered in the worms. I have a holding (very young) female German Red Peacock in with another female and male in the tank. Both the females have white patches, which I imagined were associated with the males breeding aggression but I'm not so sure. Off to take pictures.
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like planaria/white worms.

Only thing is they don't seem to be in the water, I only see them above the water line.

Why do you wan to add salt? Just cut back on feeding and your fish will eat them.
