I would just calm down and take a breather...

There are worms and bacteria that will be in your tank that are completely unharmful in any sort of way and are actually beneficial. I know many people on here with tanks with wormies crawling in them all the time.

Just sit tight, keep yourself CALM and don't worry about it. Someone on here will help you out and direct you. I highly doubt it is anything harmful.

I would start googling or jump over to the tropical side of this forum and ask. I had something like this is my tank and the tropical people told me to leave them be, they were harmless.

I've always been told, a sparkling tank is a bad tank. You need some good bacteria and living organisms in there :) Do your research and figure out what they are. Unless they are on the fish, I really wouldn't worry.
