This morning when I first turned on the tank lights and I was watching my fish wake up, I saw tiny white slug like creatures on the front glass.

Has anyone seen this like that?
Any idea what they might be?
Could they be harmfull to my fish?

Thank you for any input.

My best guess would be planaria(sp?). You could probably google and get some pics to confirm.

If it is planaria, I don't think they are generally harmful to the fish as such. ( I understand there are some fish that eat them.) However, their presence is usually indicia of overfeeding.

Watching your feeding combined with gravel vacs should take care of the little buggers.
