Baby shrimp??

I had to flip on the tank lights (long story) late tonight and while getting my hands wet I heard the unmistakable sound of a fish jumping out of water. I looked into the tank and saw thousands of little critters swimming/ floating through the water. The tank looked cloudy at first but looking closer it was what must have been peppermint shrimp frye. The damsels ate a lot of them, The power heads and oerflow seem to have taken care of the rest. Is it possible my shrimp had babies? If this happens again, what can I do to save them and maybe even raise them? Would putting them in a sump keep them alive? if I see a pregnant shrimp can I put her in a seperate tank??

Thanks

Calvin

Yes, but it is equally as likely that it was mysis shrimp.

As far as I know, I dont have mysis shrimp. Either way, is there any way to raise these to maturity?
