Default some help needed with water parameter

Hi all, my new 2ft tank have been up and running for a week and did water change 3 time within this week. Im doing a fishless cycling and water tested and ammonia is 2ppm, nitrite 1ppm, nitrate 10ppm. Introduced from sea view aquarium staffs to dose brightwell microbacter7 for a week for the BB to grow in the new filter. Yesterday i saw my tank have some tiny white stuff swimming in it.

My setup is -
60 x 30 x 40 tank
beamworks hi-lumen 60
eheim 2211 with 300L/h

Pls give me some advice on how to improve this cycle.

You didn't mention how you were doing fishless. Also you shouldn't be doing wc while cycling. The worms are probably planaria.

Get some of those hardy common pleco to do cycling, and usually no harm as they are tough. (provided they are good comm to the fish you keep) Moreover can help to clean up the aglae later. What fish you keeping?

I would not recommend using livestock that is unsuitable for the tank in the Long run unless you have someplace to re-home. Or cheap feeders unless you quarantine or treat them for parasites. Get some hardy fish that you like.
