Worms?

Doing a water change today in my 30g tank which has been going a year, I see lots of microscopic white and very thin worms - does anyone know what this is?

I am stocked with 3 angels, 5 rosy barbs, 2 flying fox and 2 african frogs.
I haven't added any new fish or ornaments for months.

TIA

Nikki

Planaria. Doing more water changes and reducing feeding rations should help reduce their population.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
