tiny creatures on driftwood ID please!

Ive got a TON of little things moving/bouncing all over the driftwood in my 55
no idea what they are

any ideas?

they seem to be just on the driftwood though, kind of grey in color.. from a distance they just look like grey specs.. thats about all the info i can think of

Daphnia? Are they moving in a kind of herky jerky fashion? Cyclops? Do some have egg sack things on their back legs? How fast do they move? Do you have a Daphnia net? If so, nab some and get a closer look with a mag glass or jewler's loop.
