Microscopic things?

Today while vacuuming gravel/changing water I noticed tiny little bugs in the bottom of pail.. Now I mean "tiny", I had to use a jewelers eyepiece to see them. They are sort of opaque with spots, and rather round. Could these be a parasite/bacteria that is eating waste in the gravel? It is all I could thinnk of. Any answers or ideas??? There were millions of them, by the numbers left in bottom of pail.
