    anyone have experience breeding these? I have 3 peppermint shrimp that have hundreds of eggs in their pouch and was wondering if I should catch and isolate them for better chance of survival. In the process of getting a tiny fluval 13 gallon just for them and maybe some tiny corals.

    nearly impossible...without some serious effort.

    I had a few clutches hatch but feeding the hatchlings were nearly impossible as is keeping them from getting annihilated in equipment. To do it successfully, you need to catch the hatchlings which usually get released shortly after lights out and transfer them to a diff system with minimum moving parts... and feed planktonic foods...

    I was thinking of just using reefchili or reefroids to feed them. the nano tank I was going to buy fell through... so lets just hope they survive in the 200.

    Seems very unlikely that they will result in anything other than food

    I don’t know about peppermints, but cleaners take A LONG time to grow out.
