Hi sorry it was a quick panic post from an overly tired me last night

Here is more details
Tank is 30 gal fresh water
3 silver dollars 2 bush nosed plecos some neon and zebras
No live plants
Nothing new added to tank for at least 3 months
I took the photo with a magnifier.. they seen to be on the glass just above water level

Ive had fish tanks for 30 years and have never seen these...kinda freaks me out lol

Should i go the fish store? Can I get rid of them without hurting my fish? My one silver dollar is just over 10 years old

Thanks in advance

Oh, ABOVE the water line. Yes, they look like spring tails. I would not worry about them.

Ok... so how did I get them? And how do I get rid of them.. do I need to worry about my 3 year old? ( he loves to help feed the fish)

Sorry if these are silly questions.. Iíve just never encountered them
