So.... I realize it has been quite a while... but I just thought I'd post about what these ended up being. I finally got a microscope (thanks ebay) and after consulting some zoology books and the internet I'm 99% confident that I have some type of Ostracod. So... yeah... not parasitic and I'm pretty sure my ghost shrimp love eating them. So.... yay! =)

Ah, cool that you've finally got an ID on them. Any ideas as to how they got in your tank in the first place?

Yeah... I posted before... uh... ah... here it is:
"I'm almost positive they came in on an umbrella plant clipping I planted in my tank.
( )"

Next time I collect plants I'm going to quarantine them for some time before even thinking about introducing them into my tank. Which... actually... now that spring is here... may be fairly soon. =)
