Hello! My name is Emanuel Rau, I'm writing from Delmenhorst, Germany. Can someone please tell me what critters are these little white things in my citrus tree pot? I noticed them yesterday when I watered the plant and they all started moving around.

I bought the plant a week ago from an open market and I don't know anything about its past. A lot of leafs have started to fall and most of the fruits have rotten on the plant since I brought it in the apartment.

I was planning to repot it and I did that today. There were a lot of bugs in the old pot and soil, aside from this little tardigrades. :)

Thank you!
