I actually think they breed in freshwater, but the larvae can only survive in SW or brackish. Which is why I am afraid that if they do breed, the larvae will hatch and die and there will be a bunch of rotting larvae in my tank unless my betta figures out how to eat them or I remove the female before the eggs hatch.
Thanks for the link, it looks like I do have one female, maybe two. The others are hiding.

Amano Shrimp can only breed in SW or brackish water. You sex them by the lines on their body, dots or straight lines.

Amano colors and sexing
I recently got some Amano shrimps, who knew Petco would carry them? As far as I know, Petco and Petsmart are the only LFS that my city has.
One of them has developed a funky color. She (?) is much darker than the others. Is this just her genetics at play, or is there something else? When I got the lot, she had a strange whitish color in her stomach area that has since cleared up (I thought she might have been carrying a disease), and one of her eyes is busted. I call her Mad-Eye Moody.
Also, how do you sex Amanos? They all look...the same. All the sources I read said to sex them like you sex cherries, but I don't notice a big difference in abdomen size at all. I guess I could just wait for them to develop eggs. I was hoping that if they breed, that my betta could eat the larvae, but then again I don't want a bunch of dead Amano babies rotting in my tank.
