White bugs in tank glass

EmeraldSkies

There are these little white bug looking things on my tank glass. Some are just little white dots that move around on the glass, others are little worm things that squiggle around. Are they dangerous, and how do I get rid of them?

Most likely a species of copeopod or "water fleas". Harmless and your fish will eat them.

Can you describe how they move. Do the bugs move in a jerky motion and can you see a tail. Knock the worms into water and if they swim in an s shape they're detritus worm, if they curl up in a ball shape they're planaria.
