Ostracod - Please can anyone help me identify it?

We built a new pond last year, and I'm finding a lot of these very pretty bluey turquuoisey little ostracods in it. I'd like to identify them, and also find out some more about them. Can anyone help?


They are active in the water, rather than buried or attached to something, and are about 2.5mm long. In the photo showing a scale, its in 32nds of an inch.


Many thanks
