Saw lots of these small stuff walking around my gravel substrate. Never seen it before and previously it wasn't present. Just saw it this few days and it's getting more and more. The tank is more than 1 year old.

They looks like ticks...yuck

Any ideas? Can't seem to find anything on the web or YouTube.

There are thousands of species of water mites, so I won’t attempt to identify yours.

They are harmless. They feed on detritus and algae, and many fish will eat them.
