tiny non moving specks with a flagellum on glass and not only

never had this before.. what is it ??
they returned after scrubbing the glass ... they seam to go with the water column and attach to the glass the filter...wood ... could them be parasites or harmful to the fish ?
the specks are still but they seam to have a flagellum which is moving
if anyone has an idea let me know.

A non-intrusive way to eliminate Hydra is to add fish that eat them. Three Spot (Blue) Gouramis are particularly voracious consumers of Hydra.

Take only pictures, leave only footprints.

those specks are smaller than hydras

those specks don't have a distinct long body and distinct tentacles like a hydra , they are like a dot with a flagellum . i attached an image of a hydra i had in my tank some time ago ... so they don't seam to be hydras ... they are some specks that seams to multiply by the day ...

All my anubias died with a mushy rhizome...
