Fire shrimp and peppermint shrimp mate!?!?

Hey everyone, I have an innovative marine 20g Nuvo aquarium that's been set up for about 5 months. There are no fish in the tank. Only corals, hermits, snails, emerald crab and the Fire and peppermint. I noticed the other day that I have about 40-50 baby shrimp in my tank! I have never heard of two different types of shrimps spawning together. Has anyone ever experienced this before? If so what will they look like if they survive to a good size? Thank you all for any insight on this! ☺️

My guess is its some sort of smaller shrimp or critter that came in on some rock. When lights go out in my tank I can see tons of critters crawling around that resemble smaller shrimp

Yea at first I just thought they were Copepods or some other type of tiny crustaceans too. So maybe that's what they are. I will try to take a pic of them as and post it. Thanks for the help
