    Is it ok to leave brine shrimps eggs in reeftank? So when they hatch, fishes can eat.

    However would fishes consume the eggs too? Are they bad for fishes to consume?

    They will get filtered out before they hatch. Brine shrimp eggs are encapsulated so can cause digestive issues if eaten as eggs.

    Unfortunately some went to the tank as the sucktion cap go loose, and it tumbled into the reeftank. Will that cause a major issue?
