Question Red Cherry Shrimp Dropping Eggs?

Hi, i have a shrimp tank which consists of Amano and Red Cherry Shrimp, this morning on my daily check, noticed a bundle of yellow eggs hanging from a java fern in my tank, i believe this is RCS eggs, Will they survive and hatch without being with a fanned by the mother. I have had many "Berried" RCS but none have dropped there eggs. Many Thanks

If that plant is directly in the filter current and gets aeration maybe, but it's not nearly as likely, in fact the other shrimp may just get a very nutritious snack

Shrimp drop their eggs sometimes if they are stressed or if something happens to them. I've also read that young shrimp can drop eggs sometimes also. Hope the new berried ones hold on to em!

Ahh i see i did transfer them into a new bigger tank about 2 weeks before i saw the eggs so that may be the case. Yeah hopefully will update when necessary
