Similar to detritus worms, they are nematodes. If you see them, time to siphon more often and also cut back in food quantity as they are like eating leftovers and detritus

It seems they are eating the diatoms or biofilm on the glass. I do siphon the sand every week aswell as cleaning my canister filter. With a 15% water change.

If there’s not a colony of them, maintain the cleaning schedule you have now.
