What worms are these?

Appalousea

Just yesterday I noticed these incredibly tiny worms wiggling on my tank glass and I want to know if they're harmful to my fish or my snails. They're about .025 to .05 of an inch and white. I can't tell what shape head they have since they are too small for even my phone camera AND my magnifying glass. They don't seem flat but then again they're very hard to see. Here's the best pic I got:

Could you get a video? If not, have you added anything into your tank recently?

It keeps going in and out of focus, but I hope that helps. I added 2 Nerite snails under a month ago and four Java ferns over a month ago.
It's possible that the snails came from the snail or java moss. Other than that, I don't think I can help any more then this, I'm no worm dude. mattgirl and MacZ could help.
