PLEASE HELP-Molt with eggs(RCS)


Today I was looking at my shrimp tank for some time with light when I noticed a berried shrimp with a small white stripe on the part that divide the head and body. I figured out that judging from what I have observe on RCS before, I know it is going to molt. I got a little panick and soon, the berried RCS just molted. I quickly scoop the molt(with eggs on the molt), and put into a small plastic cup with the tank water. What should I do with the molt? Should I seperate the eggs and do artificial hatching for it? Or you have any other ways for the eggs to be safe and hatch? PLEASE HELP.

If you search the forum there are ways of keeping them alive.
I think you need water movement to help keep them from going bad..

Well from your comments, I guess it is practically the same as a berried shrimp which died. Looks like need to do artificial hatching on them again!

You can separate the eggs from the molt and hatch them artificially. Make sure to aerate the eggs. Good luck! =]
