These look like amphipods. These little crustaceans, usually of the genus Gammarus, are harmless algal grazers that are the primary food for many animals including mandarins and six line wrasses. Amphipods reproduce easily, living in patches of hair algae where they brood their young. They are a important part of the micro life in reef tanks.:)

This is the pic they had and it looks just like yours I believe:
