i have a 3.5 gallon tank that i keep bee shrimp in, i fed it last night by placing a piece of blanched zucchini in and this morning there are what almost look like little brown/grey specks of dust all over it that move and when i looked closer they were all over the tank! i don't think they came from the zucchini cause that would be very strange? and i gave zucchini to several of my other tanks and these weird bug things aren't in those tanks. what on earth are these and how do i get rid of them

They might be copepods which were already in your tank, enjoying a feast. If they are, they don't do any harm at all and are actually beneficial. But I'm not sure

Yeah probably copepods, Mine eventually went away in my small tank. Harmless. Either that or my Betta ate them. She ate all the ramshorn snails. :confused:
