Pregnant SCS

Sooo my 1 and only Scarlet Cleaner Shrimp is pregnant and has eggs ready to hatch. First of all, i know theyre hermophrodic, but how often is this going to happen? Also is there any way I could kinda create like a breeding basket so the other fish dont eat the eggs or get sucked up? I would really love to breed them and sell them locally. Anyone have any steps I would need to take into doing this or should I just let it go? I feel bad for my Jean-Pierre! (his name)

I`ve seen others have SC shrimp and it happer every few weeks. They mostly end up being fish food. not many make it in the tank.

They are quite difficult to feed once they hatch too - they eat microscopic food. I have heard of success feeding with fry food.
