White Curly Stuffs start to take over the tank

Can't remember the name of the small white curly "worm" on the LR (see pic below). I know they are filter feeder and suppose to be harmless. However, recently they start to take over my tank especially on the glass. Any concern for this.

Spirorbidae worm. And no, there's no reason to be concerned... they are completely harmless. Just scrape them off the front glass so they don't obstruct your view...
