Could they be Cyclops? I had cyclops appear in a tank during a fishless cycle, I think they came from a piece of driftwood. I took them to the science lab in the school I worked at and we looked at them under the microscope to figure out what they were. As soon as my cycle was finished and I added fish the cyclops disappeared.........a nice light snack! :p

How long has this tank been set up?

What are the water parameters on the tank?

What is the stock list?

What is your normal tank maintenance routine?

What are you feeding? How long does it take them to consume the amounts you offer? How many times a day are you feeding?

It may just be hydra or planaria, both are harmless and can be resolved with increasing the frequency of water changes and decreasing food/waste amounts.
