    Morning...
    Looks like one of my cleaner shrimp has eggs.

    whats the chances of them surviving in my tank?

    Should i try catch the little critter and stick it in a safe place... or should my fish just be stoked for free fresh chow?

    none of my fish pester them...

    :lol:
    true that, Don’t be lazy dude, Check first where she lays the eggs then make sure they fertilized then try and contain them and see what happens, Better to try and fail then to just let it go buy...

    Trouble is they are very small and feeding them is the problem, best to let the fish have a good feed.....cheers Anita:)
