Copepods on glass?

Last night I discovered these white dots that moved on my glass and I ended up sucking them out with a eye dropper and putting it in a plate like thing were I test my water. After looking at it under microscope (handheld) and looking at pictures of copepods on the internet I decided that's what it was. Am I right or just a noob? I don't have a refugium of any sort. TIA

It's not uncommon for them to be on the glass at night.

The tend to hang out in my LR and possibly LS during the day. I soaked some frozen food in garlic and other vitamins, and a piece got lodged under a piece of LR and I saw two relatively big ones trying to eat the same piece....
