Hey there all, recently I noticed these little dudes in my tank. Currently no fish in the aquarium. Does anyone know what they are and if they're something I should be concerned about?

(Sorry, couldn't work out how to do an actual picture.)

Also, excuse the algae and what not. Today's maintenance day :)

    Looks like Planaria, I had them in my shrimp tank with no problems but the will take over and look unsightly. I used Benibachi Planaria Zero to get rid them, click the link.

    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes & dreams.

    Agree with the planaria diagnosis, generally emerge with over feeding or excess waste in the tank, elimination products can be used but cheaper and more effective in the long term to reduce feeding and up your maintenance.
