Is this planaria in fry tank??

I have little tiny tiny white worms all over the walls and driftwood and in the substrate? There are even some longer ones I have pictures of? Will they hurt the fry? And could I treat it without hurting fry? There has to be about 50 fry Glofish in there

I have white worms like that too, except that they are skinnier and they are harder to see. Those look like planaria for sure

I actually think it is a worm called detritus. They live in gravel and feed on excess organics. They aren't bad unless seen all in the water column like mine are. Means the population exploded. Probably because I have my filter off until my sponge filter comes in because the tank is full of fry. The bad thing is the worms are depleting the oxygen for the fish. I'm scared to do cleaning and vacuuming with fry
