parisite?? what is it??

I found a flat looking fish in my tank today and I have no idea what it is. I can't get a decent picture of it because it won't stop moving and it's kind of see through. It looks like a little stingray but it has 4 little legs and a tail. It's got a little green tint to it and it's got a dark line on it's back. Is it going to hurt my fish? Is it a fish or is it a parisite?

better safe than sorry. if it were me, I'd put in some medicine to kill parasites, just in case.

I found out that it was a fish flea. like on cats and dogs, fish are able to catch fleas as well.
