    Not a good enough picture to indentify them. How do they/do they move?

    Are they in the water column or only on the glass?

    Worm like or round?

    Agreed with @MikeRad89, I can't tell because the picture is somewhat blurry.
    Do you have another picture?

    They're just on the glass, they're worm like with 4 antenna type things on the end away from the glass.

    Agreed, you have hydra. I find them very unique because they have a distinct regeneration ability.

    All you need to do is do a water change or feed less to get rid of them

    Fenbendazole kills Hydra pretty quick. I got fishbendazole from Dr's. Foster and Smith, or there's a dog dewormers you can get. I don't remember the name.

    They are like mini sea anemones, having stinging tentacles, a central mouth and gut and a base that sticks them temporarily and can be unstuck.

    They reproduce by budding a baby off the side of the adult.

    The only time they have been a problem for me was when I was breeding daphnia in my water butt outside. I cleaned the water butt thouroughly and haven't seen them since.

    As said they would be a problem in the fry tank.
