If they are fry they would either be zebra danio, Cory catfish or Harlequin Rasbora.
I would try and stay away from cleaning your filter and doing water change at the same time try and leave atleast a day between
my guess is that the fry are fry and the crawling things are mosquito larvae/blood worms grown up a bit. This is if you have fed live bloodworms lately in the last couple of days if not it could be some other live food gone a bit passed its larvae stage. Do you feed any live foods???
