Zoea I. The larvae resemble harlequin shrimp larvae, only that harlequin shrimp larvae appear yellow. These guys appear white. :)

Larvae died on the 4th day. They were fed solely rotifers. Perhaps like harlequin shrimp larvae they require a kreisel rearing system. :roll:

Can't really remember what I did with the larvae. Apparently they were as demanding as harlequin shrimp larvae from what I recalled. :?

here is another photo i recently took.
i have a suspicion that these are actually the 'venus' anemone shrimp.
but as you can see in this photo, they will store the eggs in their head, then transfer them
