Strawberry Crab breeding...

Hey guys,

Had gotten a strawberry crab a couple of months ago...then decided to get a second one a little later...now I see the smaller one with a huge belly, full of tiny little eggs(like a caviar backpack)...looks like its going to explode....I don't know if I should let it happen in my tank or take it out...anyone had experience with these guys? am I going to wake up to a tank infested with tiny crabs...? I just dont want them dying on the tank, making my water turn bad...but if the other fish will eat them and is no big deal, ill wait to see...I had a cleaner shrimp that bred before, and my clown ate all of them, as soon as they came out....Im not sure crabs breed by the 1000's, looking by the size of the belly of the dude, im concerned

Well If want to keep any of them I suggest put them in a QT and once the babys are big enough to be on their own add them to your tank.
