Cleaner shrimp

One of my cleaner just released a load of babies.
It was a pretty cool thing to see.
My question is will any of them survive?
They looked like they was getting munched up pretty quick.

I've switched the lights off to give them chance to hide.
I doubt any will last till the morning.

If there are fish the larvae will almost assuredly be eaten before they grow, that is assuming they hatch. You'd need a fish free tank or something of the sort to grow them out.

they will not survive in your tank. it's very common to see, but unfortunately, they are nothing more than fish/coral food.
not only do you need a fish free tank, but you need certain foods for their different life stages.

Ok thanks.
If their mating does it mean I have good water quality or will they mate in good and bad water?

that the fact that shrimp are mating isn't any indication of water quality.

Maybe he can still help them if he scoops them with a net and keeps them in water until he can get a breeder net such as this one http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...:referralID=NA

those aren't going to be caught with a standard fish net. that breeder pictured is for fish, not shrimp.
here is some idea of what you are getting into with these-
