Mystery worms

Found these in my quarantine tank w/ new fish.
Was told that this first one looks like a leech



But then I found another that is MUCH longer. Still a leech or is it some other type of parasite?

I believe those are Camallanus worms and are harmful to fish. The recommended treatment seems to be Levimasole

However I have not had or treated them myself so please dig deeper before taking action in case I'm wrong...

Good luck!

Wow never seen that one before, I believe I have water fleas, tiny white worms and some small slugs looking alike in my substrate. Have the tank for about 2.5 months and these pest just popped up about a week ago.
