Copepods?

Was using my flashlight to look at something in my tank last night and noticed hundreds of little lice looking things on the glass throughout the tank. General consensus from what I've seen on here, I'm thinking possibly copepods, but I wanna make sure it's nothing that's bad for my tank. They were wayyy too small to take a picture. Also, these are what mandarin gobys eat, right?

Yes, they are most likely copepods. Yes, mandarin eat them, but I suspect there wouldn't be enough for it to solely survive off without some other outside food source.

Okay cool. I feed my fish mysis and flakes now, but my LFS told me not to get a mandarin goby as they are picky and really only eat copepods, but if these are copepods I'd definitely like to get one eventually.
