Skunk Cleaner Shrimp has eggs??

One of my shrimps has tons of green-yellow eggs! What happens to all the eggs when she lets them all go?

Is there anyway to keep and hatch these eggs and have a few babies? It would be kinda cool to have a few more of these little guys for my other tank!!

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks

This is farily common if you have a pair of the same type of shrimp. They will alternate as to whom has eggs. When the eggs are ready they will be released. This usually happens soon after 'sundown' on the tank. These eggs make great coral and fish food. I belive you need a fairlyi specialized setup to hatch these eggs as they are very sensitive
