First Planted Tank, First Shrimp Tank, First Berried Shrimp, look normal?

So this is my first planted tank, First Shrimp Tank, and today while doing a water change I noticed a berried blue velvet, I didn't expect the eggs to look like how they do, is this normal and look like a healthy batch of eggs at first glance?

The eggs look like they are coming loose but being my first berried shrimp, what do I know?

They look fine to me. When there are a lot of eggs they can hang like that. Also sometimes eggs do drop due to various reasons stress/water conditions etc, or it might be the first time. Theres probably close to a hundred eggs there so even if a few drop youll still have a lot left.

If she drops them, then you could set up a DIY egg tumbler (or buy one) and still get the eggs hatched.
