 I  had  kept  guppies  with  plants  in  a  3'  diameter  plastic  tub  in  the  balcony  for  6  months.  two  weeks  before  shifted  the  tub  inside  the  house.  I  recently  added  an  Otto  to  the  tub  to  get  rid  of  the  algae.
 
 Two  days  before  I  noticed  small  ant  like  creatures  (approx.  2  to  3  mm)  moving  on  the  sand  and  on  the  walls  of  the  plastic  tub.  They  don't  swim  or  even  come  to  the  surface  of  the  water,  but  just  crawl  quickly  on  the  sand.
 
 Here  is  the  pic  I  took.  
 
 
 
 Please  let  me  know  :
 -  what  bug  is  this
 -  is  it  harmful  to  the  plants  and  fishes
 -  if  yes,  how  can  I  get  rid  of  them.
 
 Thanks,

 I  think  its  seed  shrimp.  Not  harmful.  If  your  fish  are  hungry  they  will  eat  them
