White worms in my shrimp bowl


I know I have read about these on here but cant find the thread. What are they ? And since there are no fish to eat them how can I get rid of them ?

If they're super-thin and really squiggly? Just nematodes, par for the course with a new setup.

They'll go away with time.

Yeah they are. I haven't seen them before and this bowl has been up for 2 months or so. Thanks though
