OMG my cherry shrimp had babies

Hello once again!!! My cherry shrimp had babies and I was so shocked. Earlier when my shrimp had eggs 4 were berried and 2 were not ( my lfs had gave me a lot of berried ones). So 1 week passed and 3 of the berried shrimps were not berried anymore but one still is now. What are some tips to keep shrimp fry alive til Adult age so I can keep raising shrimp. Btw I have it in a 2 gallon nano tank not heavily planted but kinda planted( going to up grade my tank to a fluval ebi and fluval chi as display tanks for my shrimp)

Congrats! Im assuming you have a HOB filter so put a pre filter sponge on your intake and blamo! You're done lol. Aside from giving them an algae wafer twice a week theyll survive, trust me. Cherry shrimp are extremely hardy, you could leave them in a dixie cup and theyd live lol! (dont do that though! )
