That sounds about right, Ray, as they look very similar to cyclops, only
they're larger. I should have inferred the similarity, but they are so much
larger than cyclops and I hadn't noticed the tail fan looking appendage on
cyclops (probably because they are so small & vision is not so keen). It
almost appeared to me that they were using their tail to 'kick' thru the
water sometimes and at other times they appear to hover as do shrimp?
