baby shrimp?

ok so i posted bout having 2 unexpected glass shrimp with the guppies that i got from CL, and how the shrimp died and i thought that the guppies ate them last sunday. well the adult shrimp are long gone, but I was wondering how likely is it that they had babies before dying?
I noticed a little flea looking thing in the tank today and my mom thinks it is a baby shrimp. it was hiding around the drift wood. what do they look like?
I also heard it is hard to breed shrimp, could they have hitched a ride from my new plants?
if it is will there be more? how should i take care if them?
ack
too many questions

You'll probably find it's not a shrimp... It is probably a parasite or disease. Can you ge pics or is it to small?

way too small for a camera, it was a little bit smaller than a rolly polly type bug, and i seem clear gray color.

Google Image Result for http://web2.uwindsor.ca/courses/biology/macisaac/pages/Images/gammarus_tigrinus.jpg Gammarus sp. would be my guess.
