Brine shrimp self sustaining in tank?

Will brine shrimp sustain themselves in a tank like pods? I'm currently hatching some for my skunk cleaner shrimp and just wondered. I know it's not really necessary to hatch just for a cleaner but I think it's kinda fun. Also, will feeder shrimp eat algae off of my rock and sand and glass?

No they wont sustain because theyll get eaten way before they can reproduce in ur tank even if they want to

Okay because I'm hatching some right now and theres going to be at least a few hundred. Would that be a bad thing to put a bunch in the tank?

Maybe but I would think that they'd stay on the rocks
