peppermint shrimp

As I said in a earlier post, I have a peppermintshrimp with a full egg sack. What is suppose to happen next? When she lays the eggs or they hatch do you think I will have any survivers or will fall to my power filter and livestock? Thanks!

Pepermint shrimp are now being farm raised, but it takes special consideration and husbandry. Unless your willing to go to some expense and alot of research, don't worry about it and let nature take it's course....free food for your fish and inverts.

And, if you get more than one shrimp they will repeat this every few weeks. Cool!

Something scared one of my big peppermints and it blasted straight up out from behind the rocks and eggs/babies whatever were shooting out all over the place from it.

Serious. It was pretty funny but also very weird.
