Yes, in the wild the larvae has never been watched, there are various hypothesis about it, one of the most accepted its that the larvae need a stable salinity because they dont have the osmotic regulators of the adults, in the upper parts of the pools since the evaporation the larvae cant handle the salinity swings

These shrimps are amazing adaptable, they thrive in that pool full of twigs and leaf litter with lot of tanins

Thanks. Also didnt seem to see berried ones so I assume they are deep within the caves.

Also that white stuff maybe isnt newspaper but dead seaweed?
