Could be planaria which are tiny thread-like worms caused mainly by overfeeding.

They're not harmful, andf the fish will often wat them but they can be unslightly. Cut down on feeding to only once every second day fr a while, and do frequent, thorough gravel vacs.

if you are talking about saltwater you are posting in the wrong section.

if they are moving around they may only be copepods which are a good thing. they are a good source of food for alot of fish. cant be too sure what they are without a pic

I moved it here just in case this is indeed SW. What fish are in your tank? Do you have pictures of the planaria?
