Unknown baby...things....

Today I was cleaning out my 10 gallon, beginning the process of transforming it into a fiddler crab only tank. Last week I took the zebra danios and tiger barbs that had resided in the tank back to the pet store and lowered the water level in the tank to about 1/4 of normal. As I was taking out the decorations and driftwood, my girlfriend and I noticed hundreds of tiny....fish? They swim like fish, they look like fish, but they are very, very, very small. Even the smallest net they can swim through. They look like they have eyes, but I can't tell completely. Here's some pics but I'm afraid they won't do much good, they are so hard to see... What should I do? More likely to be barbs or danios?

That tank is almost purpose made for zebra fry. You have the low water level, the large obstacles to prevent the adults eating the eggs, the mature substrate that holds enough microscopic life to feed newborn zebras for a few days. The next challenge for you is to bring the fry along by feeding them extra small foods that they can actually get their mouth around. Check at the LFS for what they have for feeding newborn egg layer fry.
