Black bugs in my tank

Vasilissa

I bought new plants (water lettuce) a couple of months ago, and like a month ago I noticed a couple of bugs in my fry net. I killed them, but they keep coming back. I couldn’t find anything online and I don’t know if they are harmless or not. It’s hard to kill them one by one, and they didn’t go away after I removed most of my lettuce. Is it okay to just leave them be or is there something I can do to get rid of them?

They look like Springtails to me. They are harmless, It seems they like humid environments. If you keep the lid off they will collect on the inside under the rim and you can get them with a cloth.
