Possibly ich?

I've been looking at my fish tank and I've notice these very very small white "bugs" crawling on my glass. There are currently no signs of ich on fishes, just the bugs on the glass.

Last fish added was a kaudern's cardinal about 2 days ago. The "bugs" are way too small to take a picture of, I have to really focus to be able to see them

The small bugs are probably amphipods and copepods. Good things in the tank... Ick looks like bits of salt on your fish, then they will drop off, breed in your substrate and then cover your fish again... they don't go on the glass.
