100's of "bugs" pictures..what are these?

In my 75 gallon gallon tank I have 100's of these little whitish things with about 6-8 legs and looks to be 2 antennas. My stock in my tank is:
2 pepermint shrimp
1 fire shrimp
60 margarita snails
100 lbs LR
3-4" LS
Bubble coral
various mushrooms
Devils Hand (leather coral)
Candy Cane Coral
Grape Caulerpa

There is litterally ALOT of these, too man to count they are on the glass and the lights have been on all day long. So my guess is there not those little shrimp that come out at night time. Is it that possibly my pepermints have layed eggs or reproduced in any way? Heres some pics very small and hazy ( hard to get a pic they are small not even a 1/4" in length.) Please help im very curious what these are.

You could only hope. The noticable population will be short lived. As soon as you add fish to the tank they will hide more often but they will still be there.

Cheers
