My Tank has Ants???

I have a new 90 gal SW tank with clean-up crew only. I have a ton of little bugs everywhere. I have tried taking a pic, but they are to tiny. They are getting bigger everyday. They start as little white circles. Almost shaped like a snail. They are a whitish, almost clear in color and have lots of little legs. They are all over my tank and I don't know if they are good or bad. Any ideas????

They are small crustations they are harmless, when you get fish and the such they well eat them as food. part of a healthy tank.

Sounds like you have a healthy tank with beneficial "pods"- good stuff there.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
