These tiny black specks were found floating in my skimmer basket. They are very buoyant as they do not get sucked to the filter. I scooped them out with a minnow net and dropped them in a bucket. They almost seem alive but I think they just are slippery. Any ideas?75743362-A48C-4B9B-A379-7FE072B922BB.jpeg9ED399AE6-1CCE-4A17-8020-CE3A02A372E9.jpeg
