    Sorry I don't have any really good ideas on how to get rid of them. You could look into getting a fish of some kind that may eat them...
    I think trying to scrape them off while siphoning out water so as to suck them up could be worth a try.
    Hope you can figure somthing out.

    Saw your new photos, they are good and clear. do you think the little whitish worms are smaller versions of the large red worm? Or do they seem different in appearance to you?
    It may be two species of worms as the red one looks more like a flat worm of some kind to me (however it's always easier to tell the difference between segmented worms and flat worms in person rather than in a photo). and the little ones may just be detritus worms.
    I've never actually tried to get rid of any of these worms... I just let them live in my tank. Sorry I can't be more helpful, if you are still trying to get rid of them hopefully someone else has some info.
