Planaria and Cyclops appear from thin water?

I have been seasoning my 3.5gallon for a little while now, and tonight I was stopped to look at it for a second. I'm pretty sure I saw Cyclops and planaria in the tank. I didn't put them there on purpose. Where could they have come from?

Are there any plants, substrate, or filters that were used on anything else before? Did you add any snails? or ever dip your hand from one tank over to this one?

I squeezed the sponge from my 10gal community tank, but that's never had Cyclops or planaria before. I also stored some water lettuce while I was setting up a new mini pond.

Most likely you have both in the 10 but your fish devour them before you see them. Or they came in on water lettuce. No worries  Planarians are only harmful in shrimp tanks. Yummy fish food depending on which fish you keep. 😁
