weird little bugs


hi every one. i got this fish tank it has been cycled for few months and i got red cherry shrimp in it with 3 assassin snails. on 2 corners of the tank i can see a very weird thing. its like some sort of eggs or something. very weird never seen it before. they scrape of easily. and today i saw very tiny white bugs on the front glass, they kinda jump now and then and get scared if i get close to them. any ones knows what those bugs and them kinda eggs are?
i took some pictures but i dont know how to upload them here

pictures would definitely help. but you might want to look up copepods. they're little things that usually live in freshwater and are not harful to your tank at all. im not sure about the eggs but perhaps your snail laid some

If they're jumping on the surface of the water they're probably springtails.

Were they clear and square shaped with a yellow center dot? If so those are assassin snail eggsClick image for larger version
