    They seem to be eating the small amount of algae on top of soil. But I have some signs of deficiency up top.

    I'd kill em with a soapy/oily/watery dip while you're waiting for identification though...

    Problem is I don’t really want to go killing them if it may affect the seedlings since they are really just starting out and are fragile :/

    To me these look like MOULD MITES.

    They feed on decay and fungus.
