Little white worms(Planaria?) Living in ADA Amazonia aquasoil


I have a 10g heavily planted aquarium with ADA Aquasoil Amazonia normal. I have small white worms all throughout my substrate. How can I clean them up most people recommend using a vacuum? I have also heard you shouldn't vacuum Aquasoil? I will do a large water change tonight and clean the sides of my tank but don't know what else to do. Thanks

Is your tank relatively new? If so, those are nematodes and are harmless. They'll go away on their own.
