I have gotten them and cleaners with eggs however the fish usually eat them , or they get sucked up in to the filter and have a low survival rate . They also require special foods when they are soooo small

Yep, forget seeing baby shrimp. If you're lucky enuf to be around come hatching time, you'll see a tank blizzard and fish and inverts going wild for a few minutes. That's all it lasts.

I agree. I have several of them and it`s always been just free fish food.
