Cleaner shrimp eggs?

After the lights went out tonight I noticed my cleaner shrimp acting kinda funny, I mean they are all over the tank but they travel from point a to b and that's it. Points a & b change from time to time so I was a littel interested when I saw my cleaner "dancing" on the front glass. I got a flashlight out and it is releasing what looks like hundreds of something. Kinda white with a little tail off one end. Could I be seeing the birth of baby cleaner shrimp?

Yes it probably was! I had my cleaners act very funny, then BAM baby shrimp. What I saw though were tiny shrimp. Look real close.

Yep, but like I said, they don't stay in one place long, their cleaning station is acutally in the back of the tank.

Did you have any survive? I guess I may have gotten lucky, I got rid of the scats and the other garbage disposals in my tank so they at least didn't get eaten right away.

No I did not, and I had no fish as they were all in qt. The next day they were all gone.

Maybe I should check the sump...... 8O

Wonder how long it takes for them to mature enough to feel safe coming out? I'm sure they have to hide when they are that small.

I heard that they will not survive, and they need very special care. Hope they do though.

I would think that there is not any food for them to live on in a tank.... Would be nice if we could raise them.....
