Teeny tiny shrimp

After a month of carrying a few dozen eggs under their tails, the three female red crystal shrimp in my tank have hatched their broods. The shrimplets popped out fully formed, a hundredth the size of their parents, who are less than an inch long themselves.

The excitement of their arrival was quickly dampened when a week later, all the females were again carrying eggs under their tails. What to do with the hundred or so shrimp soon to be crowding my nanotank?

All right, I know what you’re thinking. No, no, no. I’m not going to eat them.
