Are these water mites?

natureDipper

Hi. I have a few fish with red gills in a tank with water parameters at 0 no mater how I test. I suspect gill fluke, but noticed these little guys on the glass. From all my googling, I suspect water mites, but really am not sure... Any help would be appreciated.

Those are springtails, they are harmles surface dwellers. Same category of useful little organisms like detritus worms.

Thank you! Definitely look like them. So I won't worry about that at least.
