Is nematode a parasite or a fish food for small fish?

I am wondering whether nematode a parasite to small fish or a living food for them. The fish I am talking about are guppy, platy, barb, tetra, cory cat, etc.

Nematodes are harmless, usually indicate excess nutrients in your water. Fish should find them a tasty snack.
