Need help identifying weird swimmy things! *video*
 
There are no fish in this tank. It's only a holdover tank for plants before I decide what to do with them.

I've seen pond snails in this tank before, if that helps. I've seen planaria in my other tank, but they looked nothing like this. I'm totally lost. Any help identifying this is appreciated.

I already have plans to clean out this tank thoroughly and even replace the gravel, but I just need to know if these things are bad first. I also need to know if I should throw out the moss. By the way, I know the ribbon plant is terrestrial. ;)

Some other things that may be helpful to consider: This tank once held some anacharis that came out of a tank with a shoal of 6 zebra danios. And the moss is from a male betta tank. It was used to baffle filter output.
