Looks like poops to me. Glory of a white sand tank, you see everything.
I’m just perplexed how quickly it comes back after I clean it... but then again my Platties and snails poop quite a bit. But still that much in a few hours after a water change. I feed sparingly as well. I am suspecting wether they could be detritus worms. I also have a brown algae problem (why I got the nerites) it’s all just not adding up.

Platy and nerites poop constantly. Detritus worms are white and about as big around as a hair.

So I’m guessing everything is ok except that it is unsightly?
Totally good. And even if it were detritus worms, which it's not, they are entirely harmless and really nothing to worry about. Most of the time they occur when maintenance has been slack and getting it all lined out cures them. Just another way of nature keeping things in check.
