Yes, Opae Ula are one of the shrimp species that goes through a free swimming larval stage.

They are quite amusing to watch as they swim in the head down fashion. They tend to hang around with each other, too.

Have found one of the berried bookshelf mamas in the past few minutes. Saw one of the opae ula larva this afternoon. Don't know if they spend much time resting at this stage of the game. Lots of hiding places and a gob of chaeto for them to hide in.

Anyway, here's today's berried mama:

Another opae ula grooming. Notice his (I suspect) large "pincers" doing much of the cleaning, extended towards his "tail" :

A couple more random shots from a few minutes ago...

Some say that this species of shrimp is blind. I say they just have small eyes.
