Sounds like it could be either nematodes or planaria---neither of which are harmful to your fish however their presense may indicate that you are over feeding your fish, are over stocked, are perhaps not doing frequent enough water changes--or some combination of all three.

If you do a search for nematodes and planaria you'll come up with a link to pictures of the parasties so you can confirm this is what you're seeing in your tank.

Please post back with additional information--especially if nematodes/planaria don't fit.
