My female ghost crayfish’s eggs just hatched 4 days ago and some breeder I’ve talked to advised I shake them off because he said they were developed enough, so I researched this and I found that you also can gently brush them off with your finger. So I tried it and no babies came off and also tried gently brushing them with my finger. Should I wait a little longer and try in a few days?

They are holding on to the females swimmerets but I can see them crawling around very slowly sometimes
