White hairlike worms on the glass...

I looked at my smaller (Walter's) tank and saw a hundreds of tiny, white, hairline things (worms) covering the sides of a tank...
It is a freshwater tank with my Betta, two nerite snails and an elephant snail.
I also had a two shrimps in there, but can't find them anymore

What are those white things

Sounds like planaria to me. It's usually caused by over-feeding. You can google it for more info. They're a nuisance but harmless.

I googled the planaria... Hard to tell, as the only pictures was of the adult that was really big.
But anyway - I did the 50% pwc and they seem to disappeared, so I'm good for now Thanks!!
