Please help ASAP! tons of microscopic bugs

Noticed these black/brown bugs today on my gravel and glass ! They donít seem to be harming my discus and plecostomus. They appeared out of no where , i havenít brought any new plants or new fish into the environment and I do my daily water changes regularly. Iíve done tons of research and I canít seem to find any information on what they are and how to get rid of them. Please help!!!

Those appear to be a type of aquatic mites. I have had them before in one of my tank. They did not bother the plants or fish.

Your fish may end up eating them anyway. Bugs are extra protein.
