Unknown Organism?!!

Here's the picture, its really hard to get a focused picture with my camera, but the tiny white bugsare on the glass when I turn on the light then quickly disappear into hiding.. there must be hundreds.. are these a problem and are they causing unknown shrimp deaths? I seem to lose one every 1-2 weeks.

They look like small copepods to me. Harmless to shrimp, but are an indication that you might be overfeeding.

Thank you, I think you're right. I'll only feed once a week.
