'Bugs' everywhere

Help :( it looks like there are a lot of white tiny bugs all over the fry tank! They wiggle around the glass. At first I thought they were microworms but there's too many of them and they are way too tiny. I don't know what they are and they're freaking me out? What should I do? I just did a water change but they're still crawling up the glass. Some of the fry will nip at them. Don't know if they're eating them tho. What should I do? They're 7 weeks old.

How much are you feeding? Is any food left in the tank? Are you vacuuming the fry tank really good? They are harmless & usually go away. I know since you have fry you have to feed pretty frequently so you may have difficulty getting rid of them. If the fry are eating them, let them go at it.

The fry WILL eat them when they get big enough ... but clean the tank more often since feeding is so frequent, and they will go away.

My shrimp tank is full of all kinds of stuff ... free swimming daphnia, nematodes, some other types of detritus worms. Unless it's hydra or planaria, I don't bother removing it. I consider them just part of the tank .... though I do catch the larger ones every once in a while and give them as treats to the bettas.

Yeah I clean an hour after they eat, but its hard to clean every single time. Thanks for responding. I was worried they were gonna attack them or something.
