    I had the same thing before I put some fish in my tank. Once I put fish in there, the worms were gone in no time.

    The worms pose no threat to anything that I know of.

    I think it's probably planaria. I have them in my tank too. Fish should help get rid of them. Make sure you aren't over feeding your fish and that your substrate isn't overly dirty. These are the recommendations I've read for keeping planaria in check.
