No, wasn't eggs. Ghost shrimp are great scavengers and will eat anything edible that comes their way (in my experience).

I have a shrimp only tank that is heavily planted... I have seen one baby shrimp survive. I was kind of surprised to see it zoom across the tank. I'd always heard they ate their young. I find them fascinating and rewarding in their own way!

I just got one shrimp for each side of my split 10 gallon, but I didn't consider one thing, and I must ask, do they need some type of filtration or an airstone? I do have live plants in each side so would that help them?
I feel really stupid for not considering this when I bought them.

Nope. I keep some in my ten gallon betta tank with no filter and no live plants.

I picked up a few Ghosts today and while I was floating the bag they were in my betta started biting the bag should that just tell me that he will like to make them lunch or was he just being curious?

My fish try to bite the bag for any fish, but they usually leave it alone once it is out. The ghost shrimp are definately capable of escaping.
