peppermint and cleaner shrimp

Is it possible to raise shrimp fry? I have a pair of skunk cleaners and a pair of peppermint shrimp that mate about every month or two.I can see the free swimming larva but they are gone the next day.Just wondering if its possible to raise them.If not are they good fish/coral food?

Rasing shrimp from eggs is very hard to do because 99.9% of the time the eggs become fish or coral food.

Basicly you would have to isolate the srimp just prior to releasing the eggs and then have to isolate the eggs from the adult shrimp at the same time providing the proper water conditions for them to develop. Once hatched you would have the ordeal of feeding these baby shrimps until they are large enough to eat prepaired foods.
