Unknown Critters

Tonight I went into my room and looked into my tank without the tank light on but a ceiling light. I was very surprised at what I saw. I saw like 10 of these little flee-like things running around the front of the tank and also saw a 2" worm-like thing on a rock. What are these things?!?

LOL no I can't they hide when the tank light comes on and my camera would not pick them up just under the ceiling light. The flee-like things looked kind of like a baby shrimp but I don't know.

I'm going to say that the "flea" like things are amphipods http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amphipod

And the worm is probably a bristle worm
