    I bought some nitella off my local trading site and these guys came along with it. What are they? They breed like crazy. Was wondering if I could use them as an alternative food source, or am I best to keep them well away from my tank?

    I can't tell what they are. Maybe Daphnia?

    Yeah, though a lot darker than the images I've found on google. They look transparent, but what I've got are almost black.

    They look like ostracods - seed shrimp to me

    I have those in my tubs outside. My fishes love to munch on them and my friend feeds them to his goldfish fry.
