Cleaner shrimp carrying eggs

Now I'm not getting my hopes up too high, as I know that the odds are really good that none will survive, but after bringing home 2 new shrimp today I was rather pleased to find out that one was carrying a belly full of eggs. I am already convinced that this will translate into a belly full of free food for one of my fish, but was told by the guy in the store that in an established tank without too many predators or corals that there is a chance that one or two may make it. Oddly enough...my tank fits that description. Does anyone have any ideas or hints they'd like to share that would help me out? I had the same experience with a crayfish in my freshwater tank, and it was a lot of fun housing them until they were full grown.

Thank you.
