little white worms about __ that long maybe ___ long?

I got em, but not to the excess, I find them in my empty QT tank alot as in empty no fish 100% cycled and being fed an algae wafer once a week and three pieces of Kens food flake twice a week.  They build up but the fish that are in QT at any given time eat them before the WC.

I think they are a form of plankton.

Okay, so the tank was infested with millions of tiny white bacteria that killed most of my Endlers I got from Captain Bob and my plecos that just hatched.  What I did first was boil everything in the tank and did a complete waterchange.  This got rid of the problem, but the problem came back.  So I salted the whole tank (without the fish) and the problem vanished within minutes.  It killed all the bacteria in the tank bad and good, I think.  Thank goodness.  Now I'll be doing a water change everyday until the water stabilizes and I can put fish in there without them dying.

I've been having a water issue lately.  The water from afar looks clean but once you turn the light on it's cloudy, not like a milky cloudy, but looks like there are millions of little white creatures swimming around in the water column.  I don't know if it's from since I do water changes on a weekly basis.  In two of my tanks I had to take everything out and boil it, which made the problem go away, but then it was cloudy for a few days before clearing up again.  However, the other problem still exists in new tanks now.  Has anyone experienced this before and if so, do you have a remedy for it?  The fish don't really seem to have a problem with it, but it's bothering me like crazy!  Any help would be great!  Thanks!
