Probably pods, but can't give a positive ID without a picture.

Check out amphipods and Copepods
The worm is likely a bristle worm. All of them are good to have

How old is the tank? Probably some sort of Pod, Just means your tank is maturing. check this page out and see if it's any of these.

Spiny worm might be a bristle worm, its harmless if so. Actually it's a beneficial addition to your CUC. Not pretty though, good thing it comes out when the light are off. check here for possible ID's
