I don't really know much about breeding ghost shrimp, since I never really wanted to, but I've heard of other people doing experiments with them.
Ghost shrimp babies are larvae, and do not hatch fully developed. I've heard that they are drawn to light sources, so be careful about your lighting. Also, they should be separated from the adults because they might be eaten.
Hopefully someone else can tell you more

Im pretty sure ghost shrimp larvae need brackish water to survive.
