Baby SHRIMP! WOW!

Okay. At first I thought my diet coke had been spiked. So I had the Mrs and kids verify for me.

I've got like 10+ little translucent shrimp running around under my largest rock in the tank. A spot the fish can't really get to.

Now the strange part. Who is the mother/father?

No new live rock for about 3 months.
New Peppermint Shrimp about a month ago.
Cleaner shrimp has been in the tank for about 9 months.
Last week I did just add a new clean up crew to the tank. (Refreshed numbers)

This is lucky x2 since last time I had babies it was cerith snails. About 10 have made it that I see. Still white shells and growing.

Any IDEAS on how I can tell what they are and/or how I got them?

Either this or they are larger "pods". I have seen some pretty big ones and the look kind of like small shrimp.

They're known as MYSID shrimp, and look like baby cleaner shrimp, but they'll never get big. They come in with rock, corals, macros.

Yep. Likely pods. Didn't think about that one.
