Do amphipods look like little tadpoles?

Hello,

Today, I recently observed a bunch of small -1 to 3mm of what I would describe to be like tadpoles. They have reflective eyes, a long slender body tapering off to the end. No clear appendages seen; nor antennae. Are these amphipods? I have two percula clowns, a blue tang, yellow tang and had two cleaner shrimp... I lost one a day ago and haven't been able to find the body? Possibly in the anemone? Any ideas?

Possibly shrimp fry.

Yeah I don't think you are describing amphipods. Whatever they are, the clowns will take care of them eventually, I'm sure. :P
