What are these?? At first thought it was triops. But I found a few of them. Are they parasites? Found 1 swimming around in my aquarium few days ago. And today found another one attached to my goldfish fin. They swim crazy fast. Should I be worried?

It's alive and swimming fast as lightning. Few days ago I found one in my Hospital tank, bigger size which I thought maybe triops egg somehow end up in filter sponge or something. Today I found one in my main tank attached to my calico fin. Both hospital and main tank were using different sponge filter so I don't know where they come from. I try to look for more but can't find any. I'm afraid it's bad for my Fishes. I looked up Google but can't find anything about this weird alien thing.

Yes it's alive and healthy. I cought it and put it on a small cap filled with water. Crazy active. It looks like tiny horse shoe crab.

I googled this and absolutely nothing came up

I don't think it is a crab

It could be a baby of some sort of animal

Hi, have a look at Argulus louse, that’s what it looks like to me & goldfish do seem to be prone to them.

I searched Google for few days can't find anything. At first I thought it was a triops which is relative to horseshoe crab but very small, since they have the same feature. But I don't think it is.
