    it sounds like it might be a swarm of newly hatched amphipods, but thats a long shot from your description.

    If they move, catch them and put them in a small glass container so you can ID them propperly.

    but my guess is on a type of pod hatching

    Stupid Question: but could it not be dust? didn't move something in the room? otherwise Crispin has a plausible answer.
