Bug infestation!

Lauraaac

It seems overnight I have an infestation of these little white bugs in my 4 gal planted betta tank. Please help me ID these and and advice on how to get rid of them would be amazing.. thanks!

They are on the glass / water, move quickly and look like white fleas? Let me know if I can provide more info!!

When did they arrive? Did they come with the plants or the betta?

With the plant. I did a dip on the wisteria but still there’s bugs about a week later :/

Copepods. They're harmless.
