Hitchhickers 😦

Hi Guys. 'Newbie' here. I have kept a large tropical tank in the past with Discus & much more however just recently bought a brand new marine set up.... so new to all things marine.
It's 400l with live sand, artificial rock, some soft corals zoas and a few fish. We have been running for a few months but recently noticed a few 'bugs' appearing. I am sure they are all forms of "pods' but checking with you helpful lot if there are any concerning ones in there. I have tried to attach pics but here's the descriptions
*Tiny white specs jumping around the glass and free swimming (tickling my poor Tangs) had them on my old tropical tank too.
*Small curled hard looking white things on the back (fake rock) and some in the filter.
*small clear brownish flee type bugs around my rocks and corals and large ones in my filter.
Hoping they are all normal and completely safe but please tell me otherwise. Many thanks Sarah

Can you see the pictures? I am sure the little white bits are pods but not so sure about the white curly things or the bugs that look kind of clear/Brown the biggest one I have spotted is about 7mm 🙄
