Little bugs?

I have a 10 Gallon and I've had it for a long time recently I noticed that my Betta had clamped fins and seemed to become less active then today I noticed very tiny white bugs on the glass and I have no idea what they are. Also if they could harm my plants in any way. (They are very small and my camera can't pick them up)

Without a picture, it'll be hard to identify what they might be. You can try searching for Hydra or Copepods to see if they match with what you are seeing

Could also be nematodes. Does it look like an insect or a worm?

Aquariums have the potential to grow many different types of life. Usually it's a good sign of a healthy aquarium, depending on the species.

Could you edit your photo to circle what we are supposed to be looking for?
