Not that I have heard of being discussed.
There are four main stages of their life cycle; egg, larva, pupa and the adult midge.

Maybe there were eggs that hatched?

Do you have Planaria in the tank?

How long did they sit in a cup to defrost, or did you add cubes in the water directly?

I watched the video. The white worms look very much like common detritus worms. It is said we get those in our tanks from over feeding.

I wish, but no. You are overfeeding your tank grossly. Start feeding every other day. I also recommend doing daily small water changes. Theres usually a water quality issue.... Another thing is add a size appropriate bottom feeder, most like to eat worms like those. Cory cats or clown loaches are what I would use.

Nah, corys are fast and have spikes. Just don't get smaller species, get adults if you can!

Clown Loaches get huge and not best to start with in a 20G.

Most all the Loaches pH range is max recommended at 7.5 pH.

What is your pH with the Cichlids?

right now just checked it 7.0.

Now the biggest question that I have is will those worms harm or affect my water parameters?

They are a side affect of bad parameters, not bad themselves.

Only if they all died at once might give a little spike. Part of natures way of dealing with lots of food. They are the clean up crew.

Friends /family member petsitters for fish, are frequent killers of fish / shrimp and tank inhabitants, from over feeding almost always.

An experience suffered at my house before!

Now I use little pill holders (week /2 week /30 day) Dollar stores have them for a dollar and you just put all foods into the tiny compartment and for LONGER than the number of days you plan to be gone (just in case). Tape instructions on the tank.

Usually no dead creatures
