Make sure the filter doesn't suck them up. You need food small enough for them to grab

What are there tankmates? If there is fish they will probably eat them. Do you have anything to isolate them in?

I suggest isolating the fry! It might be too late for you, but the shrimp could eat their own fry!

The extremely hard part about beading ghost shrimp is that the babies go through a larval stage, which is really hard to get them through, partly cause there so small, and it's really difficult to feed them because of their size.
