Shrimp just had babies

Should I remove the mom? She was separated before they hatched.

What kind of shrimp? Someone just told me that ghost shrimp will eat their babies. I had a ghost shrimp who was carrying eggs so I wanted to know all the details. But then she died. Meh.

Yea shes a ghost shrimp. I read that somewhere too but could not find the info. Babies seem to be doing fine, they are tiny little specs barely visible to the eye.

Oh wait, I just looked back at my PM's, and someone told me the mother would eat them, and then someone here who seemed much more knowledgeable said that they will mostly stay attached to her legs for a while and you should move both the mother and the babies to a breeder tank... but you're past that stage now so you should be fine. It doesn't sound like the mother will eat the babies.

Oh wait!

I didn't know it was a ghost shrimp!

She might eat them!

I just googled and there was a post on fish lore!

Do you have some moss or plants where they can hide?
