Can anyone help me to identify these creatures? Copepods?

Hi!

My tanks is 60L and about 2 months old, cycled etc. Few cherry shrimps and no fish. Couple of weeks ago I noticed first ones. Now they are all over the place. There are literally thousands of them. What to do, what to do? Thanks!

I get these in my rainwater and they get eaten pretty quickly, my kuhli loaches, sparkling gourami and apistos eat them.

Thank you very much! I got follow up question. I was thinking about to add school fish. Maybe some ember tetras, but I think those won't eat them? Cichilds are too big for that 60L and maybe apistos also. Any suggestions?
