Quick Question Neo Babies

Are newly hatched neo babies about the same size or larger than neo poop?

I want to suck up poop on a rock with a baster (near a big berried mom hiding in the rock). I don't want to risk sucking up a baby but don't want her surrounded in shrimp poo either.

Croeso welcome to fishlore
Newly hatched are about 1.5 to 2ml long don't worry to much about poo itll break down and if you you use a 1/4" tube you can spot pick up and thd babies will move, check your bucket carefully and just put back any sucked up, I still suck up young after many years

Thanks, I'll do that technique and not do it so often.

Give you an idea what I use and attached is a bit of stick to give you more control in the tank, after I've siphoned I hold one finger over the outlet this gives you more control of what you pick up
