Can you get baby shrimp from plants????

I’m just put together a blue dream shrimp tank and have 4 shrimp (1 female is berries) but after adding a new plant noticed a new little shrimp in the tank. The shrimp where just added yesterday and the only berried female is still berried. Any thoughts?

I'm honestly not entirely sure what i'm supposed to be looking at.... might be too tired at the moment to figure it out....

but yes, shrimp can hitch hike along in plants

That would make sense and it’s not the greatest pic because that little bugger is really fast lol but it’s the tiny gray thing in the middle

That looks like a gammarus, a type of amphipod.
