In my tanks where I have plants at the top I get bugs on them. They really don't leave the tank and the fish sometimes eat them, dunno about your turtle though, the bugs stay small and just bounce around on top of the water and plants. I dunno how to get rid of them, but then they've never caused me any issues and since I have gourami's, betta and livebearers, as well as an angel...they just eat the bugs when they can catch them. lol I often dump water over them and knock them into the water to be eaten.
As for shrimp, I haven't heard of them being up top, typically they stay in the substrate or plants as babies, they love moss balls especially. Babies usually look like tiny,wiggly larvae and then grow into shrimp if they survive. Though it may depend what kind...
