peppermint shrimp eggs

So I bought 2 peppermints yesterday for the 29 cube. When they were scooping them up I was told they both have eggs! So does this mean I will have a zillion baby shrimp or will they eat them? I only have the scooter in there right now as far as fish, not sure if he will snack on them.

How long til they hatch anyone know? I'm a shrimp noob.
lol

Thanks!!

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

I don't know how long till they hatch, but they will definitely be eaten. I was researching breeding the sexy shrimp and they can be raised on baby brine shrimp, maybe if you can catch a few before they get eaten you can try to raise them. Look at night with a flashlight because i think they always hatch at night.

Neat is the usual, last few days it's been a nightmare! lol But it's a very rewarding hobby albeit expensive. I have too many tanks so something is ALWAYS going on

I was hoping I didn't have to catch baby peppermints, I';m just as happy if the scooter eats them. I wanna fatten him up

They'll get eaten. I was doing some research as well since I noticed one of mine was full of eggs. Apparently it's not an easy feat to raise them, (not that I wanted to, I was just curious about it). I look at it as free food for my tank
