good luck. I have a cleaner that has eggs all the time. It releases the eggs in the same spot every time. I can tell being it grabs the eggs from under the tail and basically throws them while all the fish in my tank have a feast.

AFAIK there have been no or very few successes rearing the larvae to adulthood.

Consider it a free feast for your corals and fish!

there have been a few that have done it. you are going to need to set up a few different tanks and put in some hard work. im looking into doing it right now and heres a simple google search with basic info.

I think, not sure, someone here on RC documented their success, but at this point the effort was monumental and the outcome was extremely minimal. Hopefully now that they have had some success they can repeat it and get the survival rate up.

as far as captive rearing goes, shrimp aren't actual all that hard to rear. their planktonic stages aren't very long so it simplifies things once they settle on to the floor. but that's only if you have the right equipment and time to rear the things.

in a home aquarium with so many predators in such a little space, i HIGHLY doubt you'll get any to survive long. well at least the predators will be happy for the food.
