mine shrimp fry became snack food the second they hit the water column. It got to the point that I would know about when it would happen because ALL of the fish would hang out at "shrimp rock".
Wish I knew what to tell you.

Not to sound harsh, but they do make a tasty snack for the tank.

In tank refugium?

Same gizmos you use for keeping guppy babies, etc.

I would tend to think the eggs are infertile. If they are fertile, you should notice some development before mom discards them.

From what I have heard snail eggs are very sensitive and in the ocean they survive by floating on the ocean currents. In our systems the eggs will ineveitably become food because our tanks are almost always much more over populated in compairson to the wild. The fish and corals will quickly take up the floating eggs and what does not get eaten will get damaged from hitting the sides of our tanks are getting nocked around our filtration/circulation systems. If you have a pair of shimp you can expect to have at least one of them with eggs every couple weeks or so.

very cool will not be surprised if it does not work out but heck at 22-27 dollars a shot in this area it would be great if we could save a few.
