New to live plants, what are these bugs?

Iím fairly new to this planted tank stuff, Iíve had my tank for about a year but the past few months Iíve switched over to live plants. Today I noticed these really small brown bugs that kind of hop around on the glass and then these clear snail like things. Both are really small, does anyone know what these are, how I can get rid of them and how I can prevent them?

Bugs could be anything. Unfortunately they are too small to make out but they are very likely harmless and free fish food. You might want to google cyclops, scuds, daphnia, copepods etc to get and Id.

Snail thing is a freshwater limpet.
