No, Amano shrimp are totally different. The eggs hatch into larvae which require brackish water and are difficult to keep alive. Then the whole process of adapting them back to freshwater and growing them to a decent size is a very long and difficult process that many people have tried and failed. Very few people have completed the entire cycle, but anyway, there is already some interest so yay! This is not like other shrimp which will just breed like crazy and hatch fully developed baby shrimp if the water parameters are right.
