If you're referring to the small brownish spheres inside the ciliates, they are the zooxanthellae from inside the corals. Without zooxanthellae providing their coral hosts with the organic carbon products of photosynthesis, the corals die.

No, it looks like thereís something else moving around thatís significantly smaller than the ciliates.

I am not a fan of microscope video, that gives me goosebump.

I see them as well. Very small worm-like structures. Possibly 1/100th the size of the larger brown creature

I'm not sure but the smaller "worm-like" ones look like spirilla (spiral shaped motile bacteria). They can be found in a variety of environments including seawater.

There has actually been scientific research done on this:
Assessment of the microbial communities associated with white syndrome and brown jelly syndrome in aquarium corals

A quick tap water rinse should not kill the remaining healthy tissue on the coral but I would adjust the tap to the aquarium temperature. Anyone try treating with an antiprotozoal such as metronidazole?
