Very tiny bugs

I have tiny bugs in my red cherry shrimp tank. They are like specs of sand on the glass and have a jerky motion. In the morning, before turning on the light there are tons, then they seem to diminish as the day goes on and the light turns on. But there are still too many to count. They seem to be attracted to a small patch of algae that is growing also. They seems to be round, maybe slightly oval but itís hard to tell, theyíre so darn small. They are white when on the glass but appear brown when on rocks. I canít make out any other characteristics, been reading a little and assume they are safe but they are unsightly. I have a few chili rhasboras in there and thought they would eat whatever they are. Not sure if they are or not. Any advice on getting rid of them? What are they?

Someone posted something similar very recently.

Might they be the same? Might the advice given be suitable for a shrimp tank?

Doesn't look like the same thing to be honest... OP, it's difficult to say without more clear, closeup pictures. Have you looked into cyclops?

LFS recommended a Ghourami. Got this little guy yesterday and it’s done a great job of gobbling up all these bugs. I think they are seed shrimp. There are still a bunch but not like before.
