Default Ghost Shrimp Setup????????????????????????????????????????????? ???????????????????

I just picked up a 10 gallon tank to house some ghost shrimp feeders. When I purchase them alot are pregnant females. Is there something I can put into the tank so that when she releases her eggs they fall down into and the other adult shrimp can't get at them? Thanks
Mike

sounds like a good idea you would need some kind of insert i am guessing but i am sure what you could use to be honest

egg create would have holes to big the adults would get to the babys

good luck keep us updated if you can work it out

An excellent idea, although I can't be of much help. Maybe some marbles of different sizes. I'd do an internet search. I'm sure someone out there does it. When you figure something out let us know. I'd love to breed some feeder ghost shrimp for my fronts. Maybe throw in some guppies as well.

I've looked on the web. I've found nothing that helps me out so far.

I think a lot of plants might do the trick. Maybe create some caves and crevices that help them hide a little. That's why I thought of marbles. I've heard thats how some people breed danios. I may try this myself. Plants, rocks, marbles, ghost shrimp, guppies and water. Sounds like a good formula.
