Question Water fleas? :l

So I noticed these tiny little white hopping flecks zooming around in my tank. They're definitely not planaria. What are they?! D: Anybody know?

Oh, they're much too small. They just look like teeny white dots.

Copepods. Perfectly normal and harmless, and bettas love to snack on them. An overabundance of them may be a sign that you're overfeeding, though.

Oh yes. I know Copepods. I remember going into my local Petsmart and having to give a speech to the workers about them.. They were freaking out. But yes. They make a nice snack. But as Adastra said.. Overfeeding is a factor to why they are in the tank..
