Woah, crazy, dude... Not that I'm an expert by any means, but this was the first time I've heard of triops. Upside down, those things remind me of one of the stages of the Alien creature... ::twilight music::
In any case, love the look of the nanotank. Any chance you can score us some close up pics of the shrimp you're breeding? Or perhaps this totally went over my head, and you're just setting up the tank at the moment and don't have the shrimp yet? In which case... just curious as to what type are you currently considering breeding?
