yeah I have a few left...but I don't expect them to make it through another night. I am tempted to find a way to gently suck them up and put them in a safe place and see if they will hatch. The mothers not carrying them anyway for temp control.

I'm not sure I would be able to do that with a straw..I know I would be clumsy with them and prob drop them and they would go everywhere. I think I will try to siphon them out with a piece of airline.
Wish me luck..

heres what i was thinking. get a bottle with a plastic cap. use 2 hoses or straw both is stuffed in the cap one straw/hose is stuffed till the bottom while the other you suck on is tucked in right under the cap and seal tightly. you know suck air out and fill the bottle with water and eggs =)

You still have adult shrimp in there, right? If so, I predict babies in your future.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
