Have these really small things all over the glass in my tank

Have these really small things all over the glass in my tank. There clear and really really tiny. They kinda just stick to the glass and sway with the current. Does anyone know what they could be and how to get rid of it

It's a vague explanation, post up a pic and we can have a look.

Can you tell if there are any cilia..hairlike fibers that might be legs or antenna?

Are there more that are moving in the water itself?

Have you tried using an algae scraper magnet to see if you can remove them that way?
