just discoverd some minute little insects on the glass just above the water line.
the fish don't seem interested in them when i knock them off with my cleaning magnet,they just float back to the glass they are spider like in appearence but extremly small.
what on earth are they :-? :( :-? :( .
i don't have any plants,and i never use the water from my purchases either,i catch them whist their still IN the bag!!!

It may be planaria or hydra, harmless to your fish, and usually resolved by decreasing food/waste amounts and increasing water changes.

Tiny red and spider like, that sounds like chiggers or red bugs if you will. In the south u get them from being in the woods, they get under your skin, but thats exactly how I would describe one, but in you aquarium idk :-?
