Peppermint shrimp?

One of my peppermints has eggs on its swimmerets so should I be worried about having little peppermints running around??

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You don't have the proper food in the tank for the fry. They won't live.

I don't really want to have the fry. So hopefully they won't live. Maybe in the future but not quite yet. Haha
