I've no idea how we got onto the Spanish Inquisition...

To your initial question, I don't know what those bugs are called, but most of us have them. I have them in a couple tanks. They hop on the water surface, usually where there are floating plants. When I remove the cover at water changes I often see quite a few jumping here and there. The fish may eat them if they catch them, but they are very small. I've never seen an enlarged photo of them. Let us know if you ID the species.

And welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

Good to know. If I saw them and didn't know to expect them I would be startled and paranoid.

yyankeeyankeefan was the inquisitor.

I think what brought the Spanish Inquisition to mind was the 30+ questions you asked that guy so we could help him identify a bug.

Nooooobody expects the Spanish Inquisition......

well i was asking because it might narrow something down. like poor water might be the cause. sometimes it isn't just about knowing what something is but how to avoid it happening again. also if it came in on a fish, plant, or possibly from another water source is good to know......

Yeah, yeah, I know, it was a joke. You're starting to remind me of someone. But who?
