Peppermint Shrimp With Egss?

I just noticed one of my Peppermint Shrimp are carrying eggs, should we take her out anand put in a QT tank? Or just let nature take care of it , and hope we get some live ones out of it?

Thanks!

It is doubtful that you could raise them, or want to go to the expense. You should simply let nature run it's course.

from what ive read if ya catch the shrimp and put her in like a 10 gallon with an sponge filter ya might have luck !! the shrimp will molt right after releasing the eggs after that ya need to pull her out and let the babies grow feeding algae i believe

Well I just noticeed the eggs are not on her anymore? Do you know if they hide them away somewhere?? The two shrimp seem to protecting a area under a rock. I guess we just let nature run it's coarse!
Thanks for the advise.
