White dots floating in my saltwater aquarium?

I have white dots floating in my aquarium, I have no clue what are, if they are harmful, or if they i should even be worrying about them. They dont have a fixed direction pretty much moves with the water. Have been checking my fish they have nothing attached to them. Any advice would be great on what this is and how it could be solved.
