Shrimp larvae typically hatch at night.Possibly they are eaten or lost before your snagger has a chance to catch them :?

Yeah.. Redline.. was at work and tired when typing :$
hmm are there any better way to catch the larve? The parents are in a small tank around 15L but nothing else, a sponge filter with my DIY mini protein skimmer. therefore the current in the tank may not be that strong...

Are there other fish in the tank? Does your snagger have a light to attract them?
