What are these tiny white things?

I've got tons of these tiny little white dots in my floating in my tank and on the glass. They don't seem to swim, they don't wriggle like worms, they're too small to see any noticeable anatomy. When they move on the glass its like crawling? Gliding? I don't know.

I've scoured the internet but can't definitively identify them. I do have detritus worms but these don't behave like them.

Unfortunately this is the best picture I could get of them with a shrimp for scale.
