Question What are those things in my tank??

OK, so I set up my breeding tank and it's been sitting for about a week waiting for my pair to be reconditioned as my first try lead to NOTHING.

This is my setup:
-10 gal tank filled w/ 4-5 gal dechlorinated water
-Heater which has been off since the temp is around 82 degrees
-sponge filter
-one large hornwort plant
-a few snails that came on the plant
-a little IAL extract

So I was siphoning my tank today and decided to look into it with a LED light and saw little white things swimming in the water and the tiniest worm on one of the walls.
The little white stuff have a swimming pattern similar to brine shrimp.
What are those things?? Do I need to start over and clean the tank or are they harmless?

They're probably harmless. Here's a great link with a bunch of common tank "bugs"
