cherry shrimp Larvae?

I have one question, what do the larvae look like and how big are they?
I have a few cherries and I was just wondering if I have shrimp larvae or just water fleas...

Peace

With cherry shrimp they pop out just like the adults. No larva stage.

You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

I'm not sure what it is, not really worried. It looks like one white blob with two smaller white blobs behind it, really really tiny and kinda jumps around along the glass. I can't really see it all that well...

p.s. after googleing, def not scuds.

Copepod is what you're describing. The 1st blob is the ADULT copepod itself, the 2 smaller blobs attached to it's main body is the DUAL egg sacks it's carrying.

Oh yeah, they're harmless & the shrimp WON"T eat them unless you're fast enough to CRUSH one up.

Nice I don't mind them. I already figured it was probably some kind of water flea, I was just wondering what the shrimp looked like, I've never seen baby shrimp.

I only had 3 shrimp though, just added 10 juvies to the tank tonight. The 3 older ones were living in a big tank with cardinals and white cloud mountain minnows so if they ever had shrimplets they probably were all eaten:/ They have gotten their own tank now and 10 new shrimp roomies+cory fry

Baby shrimp, kinda freakishly, look exactly like a micro-miniaturized version of the adults--same proportions but small enough to slip thru the eye of a sewing needle.
