Octopus babies?
I woke up at 3 AM to take a look at the tank as I usually do and found this. I don’t know if it’s crab babies, some sort of lice or octopus babies! All I know is they magically appeared in my tank last night. It’s extremely difficult to get a picture of them because they’re so small. If they are octopus babies what the hell am I supposed to do with them? I just so happen to have a fish nursery net and I’ve been scooping them and putting them in that for the time being. Please help

Unfortunately, those are small egged babies, so you’re not able to raise them in a home aquarium. If you are interested, read through some of the journals about trying to raise small egg babies. There have been lots of attempts, but unfortunately it just doesn’t work without a huge amount of water and lots of live prey.
