look at them under a standard scope. use a depression slide if possible. you should be able to see tiny thin legs moving around on the anterior portion of the bubble-like body.

this pics you posted look like ostracods. but that's only because i can't see any legs. if the legs are there, its a water mite. ostracods also do not move around really fast and erratically like water mites do.
