Hard to tell from your description. Google-image these and see what looks most similar:

Fish Lice

Freshwater Copepod

Daphnia

Scud

Planaria

Might also be ich parasites in their free-swimming stage.

You should really figure it out first because a lot of bugs are totally harmless.

Fish lice are a little smaller than the head of an eraser, definitely the biggest of all the bugs I put up there.

That is nasty!

From the sounds of it, could be fish lice? Because they attach to the fish and feed off of them...and if they are, she'll probably try to rub against something to scratch them off.

Good luck!
