Exclamation What is this!

Ok tank params:
size: 48G extra tall
PH: about 7
Temp: 78-82
Co2: DIY
Lighting:96 watt coralife
Fish: 2 angels 2 german blue rams

Ok At first glance I thought it was just normal clear algae that you get over time from lighting which I ussaully brush down every 3-4 days. Well next morning (today) its back and as I looked really close its millions of these little tiny white worm lookin things on my glass. What the heck Are these things!!

Without a picture or any real description of the creature, my guess would be planaria.

True, with no picture or a good description its hard to tell. If its planaria its usually caused by overfeeding.
