They look definitely atyid, and probably some kind of Caridina, but it's not really possible to be more specific with these pictures. If you can get some images with more clarity in the rostral area...

BlueSky99, you have an ostracod or "seed shrimp" (pretty harmless) in your photos and an amphipod (i.e., a scud -- will compete with shrimp and depending on what sort you have may bother or go after...
