Default Baby cherries and unknown invertebrates

Here is a video of my first sets of baby cherries!




This is in my one gallon jarrarium. There are obvious baby shrimp but what are the really tiny things darting around? Close up video here:

Oh how cute! Congrats on the babies! I can't wait until mine start having them too! How many adults do you have in there?

I think 5 or 6. I think these babies are from a berried female I bought, I think.

In the first video, all I noticed were the scuds. I had to watch it again to catch the shrimpettes. lol

Congrat's on the babies.

Oh, I was not identifying them as scuds. I was just taking your word for it.

My point was, I just noticed the white things darting about before I saw the little shrimp.

I don't think those are scuds. Looks more like daphnia or something else. Might be related to the bugs on the frogbit. Scuds are bigger (about a cm when full grown) and their swimming behavior is more of a smooth curve rather than darting back and forth ( think roller coasters).
