I can't magnify the photo enough to be sure, but they look like planaria. They are scavengers and harmless. An extremely large number of them, as in the photo, usually indicates over-feeding or a dead fish in the tank that has not been discovered and removed.

In order to tell if they are planaria, we need a almost microscopic image of their head. It would be triangular like an arrow if it was planaria.
Either planaria or deitrus worms. I cant say anything until further pics are taken.

Doesn't matter both will still inhabit the tank.

Again, up close pics would GREATLY help. ;)

Also; do you add anything to the tank? food fertz, etc anything?

Personally from the image you gave, I don't think its planaria myself as most of them if not all are a nice bright white. Planaria are super pink.

Came to the conclusion that they are detritus worms because nothing is ever put into the tank except for nightout
