Weird clear bug in Substrate

Amber818

I found a few running clear bugs in my substrate. They are not very small and can clearly see them with the human eye. What could they be? Heavily planted 10 gallon freshwater tank. Kindve look like what is pictured below. Not really so much Copepod.

Looks like a scud to me. :)

That is exactly what it is. Oh no how do I get rid of them? I just read they are harmful to shrimp snails and plants in the aquarium :(

They wont hurt snails and shrimp but they may eat plants. Just pick them out when you see one. They are easy to catch with a turkey baster. ;)
