Looks like planaria to me, but its hard to be 100% sure from photos..............If it is planaria, dont worry about your fish, they will be fine...................Stop feeding for 2 or 3 days and it should die off.....Your fish will be fine without food for a few days

Agree, looks like planaria.
They feed off extra food and poo in the tank.
If there is no food source, they should die off.
Feed less, along with extra gravel cleanings.
