Question Spiraled worms on glass?

Hey everyone. I have these little white worm looking things on my glass that are in a spiral shape. At first I didnt pay much attention. But now there are many of them. Kind of tough to remove from glass. Anybody know what they are?

Difference between hip-hop and rap?
Rap is simply a word.

spirorbid worms they are common with excess nutrients ... Will come and go often found in new tanks where things are not settled down .. Scrape off with a razor ... They are harmless filter feeders HTH

I agree. Nothing to worry about. They will become fish food over time.
