Do you have male Amano shrimp in the tank as well? Amano and neo car. are too different in species to mate. Neos carry the eggs until the tiny fully developed shrimp hatch while Amano shrimp hatch as larvae that have to go through a larval stage in salt water in order to morph into shrimp. I don't see any way the two species could possibly cross breed. That would be like an elephant and a kangaroo crossbreeding.
