Is this a baby mantis shrimp?

So my girl saw this the other day in our tank. Is this a baby mantis shrimp? We saw several of them around this one live rock. We currently have just one clown fish and some hermit crabs with coral in a 29gallon. We’ve been trying to breed copepods to try a mandarin and came across these guys.

I’m not to sure I looked up the photos and it looks similar but not exact. It’s even got like a green/blue tint to it
