Berried Cherry Shrimp

One of my Cherry Shrimp is berried and is in my community tank. I have a school of neon tetras and was wondering if they would eat the baby shrimp once they hatched (20 gallon with lots of plants). Should I make another tank for them?

As @johnnyxxl said, with enough hiding places (and lots of plants should be okay) enough should survive to sustain a colony.

I would never tell someone not to have a separate tank for shrimp.  They are easier to enjoy that way, since they are more active, and you will see baby and juvenile shrimp out and about, which doesn't happen in tanks with fish.  I have guppies in all of my shrimp tanks, and the colonies do fine, but I rarely see baby shrimp.
