Pregnant Ghost Shrimp [Video] - Questions

Finally caught a good video of my pregnant ghost shrimp with her green eggs. Attached a video of her eating, complete with some eerie music.

Video Link:

I've seen her like this for roughly 5 days, I've read it takes roughly 3 weeks for them to hatch.

Does anybody think some of my smaller fish such Neon Tetras or Glowlights will try and eat them? Is the likely survival rate of most eggs into juvenile or adulthood less than 50% in planted tanks with schooling fish?

Tetras arent aggressive but if it fits in their mouth they will chomp it. Hiding places like moss is good to have.

Fish will usually try nip at them when they swim about but the shrimps just dodge away.

I wouldnt worry about survival rate, they multiply like crazy.
