Most fry end up being snacks to the fish in the tank. Maybe if you were to separate the adults and eggs in a separate tank.

The bigger question is....what do the babies eat? You can easily take the shrimp thats carrying the eggs out of the main tank and into an isolation tank, but what do you feed the babies when they hatch? If it was easy to do, cleaner shrimp would be alot cheaper than they are now.

Hopefully, you're lucky enuf to see the eggs hatch. I must've had my shrimp pregnant, with the green egg sacks plenty of times. Only once was I around to see them hatch.

It's like a snowfall with all the kids in the tank getting really excited, running around all over the place real fast trying to catch the snow in their mouths. The show is over in a matter of minutes.
