Strange new visitors - Friends or Foes

Hello all...have some new visitors in my 28 gal reef. Wondering if they're off-spring from my shrimps or some kind of parasite. They are the size of common ants, 6 legs, maybe some small claws...hard to tell... hang out at the top of the reef, about a dozen or so, see through, have long antannae, and just scurry about night and day - My crabs, snails, and urchins seem very interested in them - as in trying to eat them, but they are too fast to catch. The 2 shrimp I have show no interest in them. Any clue what they are and what I should do with them. Thanks
