It will be less than a week till hatching when the eggs lighten up and you can see eyes in them. Really the only way to raise the shrimplets are to have a very heavily planted established tank with no fish to eat the yummy babies. And then have a sponge over the filter intake. Some will live. Sorry but thats about the only way I know of.

they will eat anything they find in the tank. Mainly plant leaves and food on the bottom of the tank. Because you have plants a few *may* survive. Are there any fish in the tank?
