HELP!!! Arrow crab just released babies....what can we do??

We just recently purchased an Arrow Crab and this evening we noticed that it started releasing it's babies! We weren't prepared as we had no clue that it was preggers! Is there anyone out there that can give advice as to how we may be able to save them?

Place the larvae in a cookie bottle with moderate aeration to keep them suspended. Feed them nhbs and hope that they survive on it alone?
I love Artemac!

Welcome to MOFIB and good luck on your breeding attempt !
Just moved this thread to the right forum (hope it´s actually the right forum :roll:) so we can keep information easier to find in the future. ;)
