What are these things?

So today i was gunna scrub down the walls of my tank but i found these little white spects mooving around on the glass. The sorta look like tiny white mices crawling around. To be honest they look like sperm. And there small, less than the thickness off hair.

If isn't pods, it could be a flatworm. Small fish relish them as a food source. Some species have been shown to eat specific types of corals.
