Little worms???

I just looked in my senegal bichir's tank that has like thousands of ramshorn snail babies in it and on the glass I found this little tiny 1/4" opaque worm things crawling around....what are these? O_O; I mean they're ALL over the tank glass squirming around in different sizes...he's the only one in the tank

I should also mention that my senegal bichir hasn't been eating (at least from what I can tell) and keeps swishing his food to the back of the tank...snails are having a field day. Are these parasites? I think that he ate most of his frozen blood worms the other day. Maybe contamination?

Search "planaria" here--if there's uneaten food lying around you can get a big "bloom" of them!
