Completely understandable, but if the larvae are left in fresh water, they will die. I see no way to remove them safely from the water column. This would mean that the best way to capture all of the the young is to place the mother directly in the brackish. If you had any thoughts about how to capture them, please let me know. This was the best option I could find.
