Need some helps here....

I have a friend, she has a 60g tank, there is few fishs inside. She is out of town and asked me to clean her tank.
Her tank has a heater and the fishes are also ok. I'm more concern about those little white transparent worms, they are all over the tank and even into the water. Is it a danger for the fishes or not ?? I can see them moving, i dont know but it scare the hell of me. I dont want to put my hand inside.
Do you know why there is those worms and what to do to get rid of them ??
I have betta tank with females betta inside, 3 of 20g and none of my tank have those little worms.
By the way, those tiny worms are just a little smaller than the blood worm i use to feed my betta.

can you call the friend and ask about them?

may be they've dealt with them before.

if you can get a pic it'd be helpful too, what kind of fish does she have in the tank?
