Difficult to tell with that photo. What else is in the tank?

It might be copepods. If so, they're harmless and nutritious!*

*For fish. Probably not worth eating them yourself...

I have a betta and some snails in this tank
Betta probably snacks on them between feedings, they're great live fish food.
