Probably amphipods. If you see spiders / tics, then you are looking at copepods. This is a very general statement, I realize, but just giving you some direction to go on.

All my worms are being eaten by Skunk Shrimp & Fishes. I see them very rare now.

They actually called "Thread Worms" They are harmless and are great scavengers
