    To be honest it doesnít look like any off them .It looks like a garden worm with barbel head on it. Possibly a anchor worm but not sure how to add picture on here.

    You can see the worms with naked eye . I would say skin fluke but can't be sure

    Be interested to know magnification, but to me looks like a larvae of some sort, a very young dragonfly or something? Not sure it’s a fish parasite though
