Critter ID?


I have a bunch of these in my 2.5g planted tank. Not sure exactly what they are. A little help would be appreciated. They are abaout 1/4" long or smaller.

THat's the best I have been able to get. I am working with my phone, which doesn't have a great macro mode. Plus these guys move pretty quickly... they swim, crawls, and hide very well. There are bigger ones, I will try and catch one out in the open today...

It seems I just had a shrimp die as well. I hope these had nothing to do with it. The 6 RCS I had for almost 4 months now were perfectly healthy...
