Will leaving eggs cause any problems?

Sb092

I just noticed a few of my amano shrimp are carrying eggs. At first, I thought they may have a fungus or disease on their swimmer legs, but after researching and looking at many pics, I have determined they are “berried.” I am not planning on trying to do a brackish tank or rear the young. My question is, will just leaving them alone cause any harm? Will they develop a fungus or anything if I just leave my pregnant shrimp alone? Will they just release the eggs and keep getting pregnant? Will the fish eat the dead eggs (free snack?)? I couldn’t find much information pertaining to just letting them stay in the freshwater tank, most things I found discussed the laboring process of trying to breed successfully.

I can see fish eating the eggs. Otherwise you can try to catch em in a vac at water change time.
