Pregnant peppermint shrimp help.

So I have a pregnant peppermint shrimp that is pregnant but I don't know what to do with her. I want the babies to survive. She is in a 75 gal reef tank with a pair of tomato clowns and a pair of damsels Also a blood red fire shrimp and various coral should I move her to a separate tank or let her be?

If you want them to live you'll need to separate her and artificially raise the shrimplets.

I have a little 4 gallon pico reef tank with only a few mushrooms 5 crabs and another peppermint shrimp. Should I move her there and take the current one out?

I don't know if other shrimp will prey on the babies. But fish certainly will.
