Question White 'bugs' booming in my no filter aquarium.

Hello,

In the last few days, I've noticed a lot of white 'bugs' in my aquarium and I'm not sure if they are dangerous or if I should do anything about them? The aquarium is 80 liters and is 3 weeks old. No filter, no heater, etc.

I have attached a video showing my problem.

Thanks!

They are inside yes, in the water and against the glass.

im reguritating this from another site, but, :

Rcs babies are miniature adults. It sounds like what I had a while ago but its an easy fix if it is. I didnt feed my shrimp for 2 days and and put one of my mollies in to see if she would eat them(she tore through them). Took her out and halved what I was feeding the rcs and they haven't come back yet.

That is from the website fishlore. Kinda seems like what you may have, because, as your name suggests, that was in a shrimp tank as well, i believe.

Bump: This is from aquarium forum,

Copepods. Compeletely harmless and pretty common place in nearly all aquariums.

Hope some of this helps. From what I can tell, they are harmless, but, I am not an expert by any stretch. I just looked it up really quickly on Bing. Again, hopefully this helps, what kind, if any fish are in there?

Sorry for all the bumps, but, look at this site: https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...ugs-glass.html Here is a discussion with pics about someone elses struggle with little white bugs and some information on it and some, albeit pretty drastic, solutions to them. Hope this helps and good luck with them!

Ah I see, thanks for that information!
No fish in there for now, just 6 cherry shrimps and some snails. One of the cherry shrimps has eggs, so I don't want to put in any fish because I she would eat the babies. Thanks again or the reply!
