Hello, I have a four gallon tank just newly setup for about a week and a half now. Two days ago I noticed on my one and only live plant had brown algae growing on it and I looked that up and apparently it's common in new tanks and is not a big issue.
However, today I found hair-like white worms all over the glass of my tank. I studied them and they are in fact alive and crawling on the glass. Just last night they were not anywhere in the tank that I could see. I don't have any food or inhabitants inside the tank. A week earlier I had started to cycle my tank by dosing it with the right amount of Bacteria to help the cycle progress faster. That- and a liquid plant food are the only things added to the water.
I read that these are bad bacteria and they are good bacteria from others. I couldn't find a solution on how to remove them while looking on my mobile phone so I'm here now. I took pictures on my GOOD camera but I cannot find the USB cord to upload them so here is a bad quality photo from my phone.
They look like this but much smaller.
What can you suggest I do to rid of them? I have a sand substrate.
This is how my tank looked yesterday:
