Worms in tank?

After a disaster wiith the filter, I noticed there were thin white worm like things in the tank. Bubs tried to eat one but after yeelling at him, he stopped.

They're floating in the tank and on the side. Any advice?

They are likely detritus worms. As I'm having difficulty typing in any large amount here is a web page that helped me:

Unfortunately I can't find the original article on detritus worms that I got my info from so I hooked out a few topics from the forums regarding them and other micro organisms from other users with issues:

I was also told it was simply planaria....

Either way, tank is getting a scrub down.
