my Amano and Ghost shrimp are always preggers. They are quite a bit larger then the males. Amano shrimp seem to carry more eggs. After about two weeks you can see little black dots on the eggs (eyes). Brackish water is needed to successfully keep the baby shrimp going. I haven't be able to successfully hatch any babies yet. I have to do more research about brackish water.

I think it's easier to see them in this shot.

Yesterday she tormented me by hanging upside down right beneath the surface. As soon as I got the camera focussed she flitted away. Tease!

Ghost shrimp babies do not need brackish water. They need a tiny food source, like copepods or ostracods. I have had success with greenwater from a little pond in our flowerbed as well.

My girl's first pregnancy and 2 of her eggs are teetering on the edge of the membrane.

I think she dropped on yesterday. But that was the day I fed bee pollen so I can't be sure.
