That looks like some kind of mite maybe? I don't know how to get rid of them, but maybe you could try a salt dip for your plants? I know that that can help get rid of pests.

I think I found them on Google aquatic aphids

Oh wow that’s a lot of them! What fish do you have in the tank? You can apparently spray tea tree oil on the aphids to get rid of them, but you shouldn’t do that if you have a labyrinth fish in the tank.

Mollies and swords, won't the oil kill the fish
