Tiny little white bugs?

lerla8

So recently I notice these tiny little white bugs on the bottom of my tank. They are smaller then rice.. anyone know what they are, and how I get rid of them?

Pics are a bit blurry but they looks almost like seed shrimp. Seed shrimp are harmless and food for fish.

Yes, im sorry they are blurry, these things are so tiny, clear pictures are really hard to get.. how would seed shrimp get into my tank? I havent added anything to them.

Haha I used to ask myself that too when I saw them in my tank. I used to see all sorts of things, seed shrimp, cyclops, and water fleas. Usually your aquarium kinda makes them on their own. Its just a natural and normal part of having an aquarium. Its a part of the ecosystem. You probably have other little things in there too but you dont see them.
