Hi !
I'm new on this forum and i have a little question about crab larvae. # weeks ago i just saw on my femalle crabs something looking like eggs under his front shirt, and now i have in my salted crab spot on the aquarium a lot of larvae. I will upload a picture and ask for your expertise.
I'm not sure if it's a parasite of crabs larvae
Thanks and sorry for my english

It looks like a cyclops copepod. Pain to get rid of, not sure if crabs eat them. Harmless to most fish though. But not a crab larvae.
