Strange little bugs


Recommended Posts

I was doing a water change and cleaning one of my beta aquariums and afterwards saw these little tiny red bugs walking the walls of the glass just above the water line. I'm not familiar with these and was hoping someone could help me identify them. The three attached pictures show the bug under 7x zoom from my phone (I don't have a microscope) and at 2x while looking at the side of the tank, the bug is circled in red. I did a bit of research and found that water mites are common in freshwater systems, but I'm not certain that's what these are and even if they are, I have no idea how they got into my tank, this tank has no live plants other than some duckweed and all the decorations are fake.
