No not in this tank. Those aren't nerite eggs. These move and like jump or "fly" and land on some thing else like fleas with wings or some thing it's weird

If they are round then they are probably seed shrimp or ostracods. Harmless. Fish usually eat them. I see them in my shrimp tank.

That's so weird though like how did they get in there in the first place? I never thought I'd end up with bugs I had to live with in there other than treating for the occasional parasite

They probably arrived with plants though it is possible that they arrived with fish.

Well, at least your fish have some live food. I recently got scuds from my LFS java moss. Now I have a 1gallon breeder tank for them, I'm gonna use them as live food for my soon to be shellies

If you don't have any inverts like shrimp or snails in there, then you could use a chemical to kill the bugs off, if you don't want them in there
