I've had these small jumping critters at times and small white
micro-worms. I have houseplants too so was a bit concerned about
the mention of aphids. These can be quite descructive to some
plants I think. When I was keeping bettas, I also had various
infusoria growing in the tank but with platys and neons I've
not been able to see any. I think they hunt them more diligently.
