Tiny bugs in aquarium ?

I recently had an explosion on with these bug like creatures. I'm pretty sure its cyclopes's but I'm not sure. Here is a pic of them.


(Here they are, chillin in my co2 chamber.)

I was wondering how I could get rid of them because it's really unsightly seeing them float around. I have all shrimp in there w/ shrimplets. I heard getting some fish would help, but I'm afraid that they will eat the shrimplets. What should I do ?

I might stock my tank with neon tetras maybe then. Hopefully they don't gobble my baby shrimp.
