And my tank is a 1.5 gallons with three ghost shrimps and a moss ball, and the temperature is 65-66 degrees.

Thank you. I searched it and it's called a "copepod, cyclops" and they're completely harmless to the aquarium, and have a life span of up to 3 months.

Yeah, your fish will probably eat it.

I don't have any fish, just a few ghost shrimp and I plan on getting more.
