Anyone know if these are Aphids? Got them in multiple tanks. Any solutions to get rid of them? Have been knocking them off the plant’s daily hoping the fish will eat them but doesn’t look like the numbers have gone down.

Sure looks like aphids. To be clear on what I’m seeing, are the bugs at the surface, eating plant leaves that have one surface of the leaf in the air/out of water?

Vals tolerate trimming well, if my description above is correct, I’d just carefully cut the leaves with aphids below the waterline, and remove the parts with aphids carefully so non fall off. Do that a few times and the problem should be done.
