Pom pom crab has eggs

Is there anything I can do, or has anyone ever had any luck rearing these things? I have 2 crabs so there's a good chance they are viable, I was thinking about maybe setting up a 10g for them and just cycle the display tank water through it , and maybe some sand and live rock.
I have rotifers, zooplankton, and phyto. Maybe the larva could eat something. I read a little bit on wetwebmedia and it seems to be hit or miss at best with these things. And I wouldn't have anemones for them, lol

Just thinking out loud if anyone has any ideas let me know.

Nah. They don't survive. Mine have had several clutches and I've never seen 1 tiny Pom

I only see this being possible in a dedicated grow out tank, and a nano one at that.
Someone stop me! Please! But... not just yet...
