I've searched a little online and these look to be harmless. Some would say good because fish eat them. They were moving around and did not look like nerites eggs. Can someone confirm if these are okay?

Hard to tell from the picture, but they look like seed shrimp, ie; ostracods. Do they swim about and then alight on a surface? Swim kinda crazy like and quick? Unless they have one of your fish roasting on a spit over a nice fire, I say harmless.

A paranoid shrimp keeper, is a successful shrimp keeper.
