New creatures/bugs

Well found new inhabitants in my tank........I think they are copecods/cyclops bugs:

I guess it is a sign my water is good and from what I have read they are pretty much harmless but eeeewwwwww! I was trying to keep it mostly a shrimp tank but I guess will try and put some fish in there in hopes they eat them up or at the very least keep them in check.

Any one had any experience with pseudomugil gertrudae fry and if they will eat these cyclops/copepods? Otherwise, what other small/nano size fish will eat them and not bother baby shrimps?
