You can know for sure if the cycle is done by doing what this article says.

If you can find good information anywhere it will be on marinebreeder.org. Have to warn you though it is quite difficult to breed marine fish. You will need another tank for the larva and probably another larger tank for the grow out stage. Also, space for rotifers, artemia, and phyto culturs. Not a simple process.

Nope, your critters will more than likely eat them.

I agree. They will become tasty snacks.

You can find more information here: Marine Ornamental Fish & Invert Breeders Association • View forum - Ptereleotridae - Dartfish

However you need to remember that your fish aren't the only think in your tank, you've got your cleanup crew to think about. In addition they don't call it "live rock" and "live sand" for nothing, all sorts of stuff lives in there, and what lives, eats.
