What are these things sticking to the tank wall? They have long tentacles compare to its body and just cling on to the wall.

look almost like those hydroids but the tentacles have a different shape. I'll be interested to hear what others have to say as well.

ok from what i research, they are no good creatures and I do have an invertebrate in the tank. I think I will squash them later with a paper towel because it seems like there is more and more by the sec

If they are hydroids they shouldn't last too long on their own and yes they will multiply (likely quicker that you can squish them) before they die off. Hydroids are not all that uncommon.
