Hi everyone, My tank is relatively new (around 4 months) and I've started to see several worms near the substrate on the glass. One looks similar to planaria since it has a triangular-shaped head however it is transparent with black stripes. Also this other worm is long with a transparent body and looks as if it has pincers or something 😬 and something looked to be eating it (looks like some leach or glass worm). Also there's these tiny bugs everywhere and a tiny worm on the glass (see last photo). My shrimp or baby shrimp don't seem to mind all of this and I haven't found any dead ones yet but I'm still worried. please help what are all these worms and what should I do??
