I know alot about planaria and jsut got a degree in college. It would be beneficial if you find a local breeder because ive heard of many worms looking like planaria but are more harmful. BTW planaria is not white!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its dark brown with spots. The white may be some sort of insect or even, a fry! But you never know. Like I said, find a local breeder. They know many things that occur in tanks. For now, leave it in the tank and if the fish behave differently or seem sick, get the fish into another container with clean water and empty the infested tank. Dont forget to give your fish medicine and clean all decor and substate with soap and water.
Do NOT clean anything your gonna use in your fish tank with any kind of soap....EVER!.........Use old tank water from a water change and a "Aquarium only" brush to clean and tank decor.........Its NOT a good idea to ever change all your water.........A maximum of a 50% water change and thats if you have fry in the tank.........A 30% water change every day for 3 days is better than a 100% water change all at once

Often going in circles in the same spot for a extended period of time. Under the microscope they looked like miniature clams. When I did add fish to that tank, all the seed shrimp where wipped out in about a day.
