Baby Skunk Cleaner Shrimp

My two cleaner shrimp just had babies. I got some of them out and put them in a coolwhip container and let that float in my aquarium. I fed them some brineshrimp napullii, is there any chance they will live?

Congrats!
I too have been trying my hand at it. I put a bunch in my QT and have had them since the 16th of this month and so far so good. Good Luck and keep us posted.
Steve

Clownfish,
The only thing I can tell you is what I have tried and is working so far. First thing is, I have a QT that is 20 gal. turned the filter off and put an air line with a slow steady stream of bubbles coming out. My QT is BB with nothing but water in it. I feed them live phytoplankton and frozen cyclopeeze, not too much because you have to watch your water params because there isn't a filter running. From what I have been reading, is that they go through many stages of development so I don't really know if these will make it either, time will tell. Oh and in one of the links that romunov posted, said to feed rotifers to them also. But you are definitely going to have to get another tank, if you don't have a QT I would suggest you get one, if for nothing else the safety of your display tank residents.
Steve

Clownfish,
Your local LFS should have some, name is DT live phytoplankton. It is also good for starting your own cultures.
Oh, here is a link I found that might help if you try it again.
I know I'm going to use some of the info.
Here is some interesting info on raising Lysmata amboinensis.

Good luck,
Steve
