Well, planaria tend to drift around so it would make sense for it to be clinging to your fish if it bumped into him.
I think that by performing a large water change, vacuuming the gravel, getting a filter, and severely limiting food you could easily get rid of them.
Is there a way you could get a picture? I realize they are probably small but it would help.
Watch your fish for signs of illness just in case.
The only other worm-like parasites I can think of are anchor worms. Google them and see if that's what you have. Because they would attach to the fish. The most common symptom is for the fish to start rubbing against decorations and things.
