White spots on and around tank

Recently I noticed small white specks on the glass and some of the driftwood in my tank. What could it be? Fungus? Tank is on low light with no co2 and some crypts and java fern. Stocked with tetras, mollies, 2 rams, shrimp, and snails. Is it something that could harm the inhabitants?

I had the same thing then the little white spots started swimming and now they've turned into tiny worms like threadworms about 1/8" long. Anyone got any ideas how to get rid of these things I've got shrimp in my tank so I'm worried about putting in anything to harm them?
