They move every now and then in a jerky pattern but I never see the black ones move. Do they only go in shrimp tanks? Is it still a sign of a healthy ecosystem?

The white ones can move a little jerky but I never really see the black ones moving other than maybe crawling on the roots of the frogbit. So is it not a sign of a healthy ecosystem?

Seed shrimp(Ostracods) will survive in lesser water quality than Water fleas (Daphnia pulex),Water fleas are one of the organisms we use in biological toxicity testing(release water fleas if they die your water sucks).
Seed shrimp on the other hand are much more diverse in the various water conditions they will inhabit this includes temporary habitats(yes you can find them in mud puddles) and what they feed on,this includes carnivores, herbivores, scavengers and filter feeders. I wouldn't say any are bad but there are 70,000 species so that cover a lot of ground.
