Good news that they don't seem *as* bad! :/ I'm so upset for you right now!
They should be fine in a bucket for a couple of days, you can even stick it in a shady spot outside so it can get a little bit of light. Root plants and Crypts (in my experience) don't enjoy being left to float for too long, though.
I've never dealt with these pests before, so I don't want to advise, but I'd put them into QT, regardless! O.o If it IS planaria, it shouldn't be *that* big of a deal. Most of the pests that come into a tank are more or less harmless, and ultimately become a part of the food chain. I actually liked it when I was infested with Daphnia for a while (before I started QTing!) But leeches??! *shudders* Leeches creep me out. O.o
How to feed them fishless depends on the tank ^.^ I have a crypt tank QTing right now that is using root tabs, and another rooty tank that is my first experiment with dirt and soil. Both tanks are doing great!
ETA - I just saw the video! EWWW! Looks like planaria to me. . . *wrinkles nose*
