Help with possible parasite....

I will try my best to describe this parasite because I do not have a camera to take any pictures. There is some sort of parasite that is on my aquarium glass that can only be seen clearly with a magnifyng glass. It is white and it appears to have a small tail. There are a bunch of them and they tend to stick only to the bottom of the tank. I have noticed this for a week. They also move around kind of slowly. There are no signs of anything wrong with my fish or their eating habits. I have done water changes and even quarantined my fish just to be on the safe side. The problem has not gone away from my display tank and I need to know if this is something to worry about or not. Can someone help to identify this possible parasite?

My tank is a 4 month old 65 gal that houses three Yellow Tangs, two Sabea Clowns and live rock. The temp is 77 F and the water parameters are all in check. Thanks and sorry I don't have any pictures.

I agree it sounds like copepods. Nothing to worry about.
