Amano shrimp Eggs~
 
Hi,
I noticed that one of my amano shrimp was laying eggs one day. the eggs dropped onto the substrate so i quickly took them out and put it in a separate breed box so other fish won't eat them. Do i have to put the eggs in another tank (without any fish) or is it fine just let them floating in that breeding box??

If i do put the eggs in another small tank, I'm scared that the eggs will get sucked up into the filter.

Thanks in advance!

The eggs will need to be placed in marine conditions if they are to reach adult hood.
I cant see them being sucked into the filter

yeah, but it needs to be done over a day or two.

you need a hydrometer or refractometer to measure the specific gravity, you will need to raise it to about 1.026@25oC
