I noticed less of the non-worm twitching white dots after nerites as well

They look like detritus worms. Planaria are a species of flatworms that usually have to be introduced into an aquatic ecosystem through plants whereas detritus worms are perfectly natural in a cycled aquarium.

I'm struggling a bit with data today so I'm just going to post a link to a site with loads of info rather than try to explain myself (warning: lots of photos of wormies):
