tiny bugs in the water

I have a discus tank
temp 85 ph 6.2

There are tiny bugs the size of pinheads in the water.
tank established over 1 year
they are gray or beige colored

I give them frozen or dry food

any ideas what they might be?

Sound like coepods. Harmless in themselves but a sign of poor/detiorating water and dirty substrate. Gravel cleanings and PWC will clear your tank up.
