If you are trying to raise the zoeys, yes. Once they have hatched, remove the female and make the water for the little ones brackish to full strength saltwater depending on where the mother amano came from. It has been tried many times with very few successes.

Make sure they have enough to eat (diatoms, spirulina, etc.); when I throw mine in my brackish tank without food only about two to three zoa reach maturity.
The female cannot survive in brackish water, but the zoa can be dumped straight in.

Thanks for info. I'm going to stop by my lfs tomorrow and pick up a few things. The female is in the tank alone, I will put her back home when they hatch. There is definitely some work involved here but I like a good science experiment.
I must of had all females before. I recently added a few and they have to be male because I have several with eggs now. Kinda cool.
