Appears to be leeches. Note the suction cup foot. Could be juveniles or adults hard to tell. But they aren’t to much of a nuisance. 

Don’t usually last too long if you have fish. But unfortunately most of the treatments that kill leaches kill shrimp and snails. Physical removal may be your only option if you’re concerned.

Leeches "inchworm" across flat surfaces, squiggle through the substrate, and also swim freely like little snakes.  Their heads are the narrow pointy end of them.  Planaria slide along the glass without inchworming, have diamond shaped heads with eyespots.  So yeah watch how they move.
