Crustaceans may pass through a number of larval and immature stages between hatching from their eggs and reaching their adult form. Each of the stages is separated by a moult, in which the hard exoskeleton is shed to allow the animal to grow. The larvae of crustaceans often bear little resemblance to the adult, and there are still cases where it is not known what larvae will grow into what adults. This is especially true of crustaceans which live as benthic adults (on the sea bed), but where the larvae are planktonic and therefore more easily caught.
Many crustacean larvae were not immediately recognised as larvae when they were discovered, and were described as new genera and species. The names of these genera have become generalised to cover specific larval stages across wide groups of crustaceans, such as zoea and nauplius. Other terms described forms which are only found in particular groups, such as the glaucothoe of hermit crabs, or the phyllosoma of slipper lobsters and spiny lobsters.

shrimplets and crab... pompom crab zoea
so the packing pompom crab dropped a ton of larvae last night and tonight the skunk cleaner shrimp dropped a ton of shrimplets. Didn't think the shrimp produced miniature clones, thought they had a larval stage too. Really sucks cause I thought the shrimp had a larval stage so didn't bother much when I saw the female shrimp berried up. well guess what I read was wrong cause the look like miniature shrimp to me.
