Usually no. But I have had some ghost shrimp larvae make it in a community tank which besides the wrong water type and predation should have never happened, so weird things can happen lol.

Palaemonetes generally sold in pet stores don't actually need brackish to breed, but amano shrimp do. I throw my zoea into my brackish 3 gallon tank and out of the hundreds that I get only a few make it to adulthood.

I have been researching getting Amano larvae to morph. It does require salt water with most success reported at 30 - 34 specific gravity. I missed the timing this go round. There were some super tiny larvae in the tank when I got home last night. With all the other inhabitants I could not get them to go to the light very well. The few that went to the light slipped right through the net (that's how tiny they are). I gave up and will wait to seclude the berried Amano next go round. https://gabhar.wordpress.com/2009/11/11/breeding-amano/
