What kind of shrimp? I'm sure you can find some here in the Swap N Shop section.

Well Amano shrimp fry do not reproduce in freshwater, so maybe you were lucky. Or maybe they really did! Which is HIGHLY unlikely.

You will most likely obtain Cherry shrimp because they are known to ship well and they are most common.

Amano shrimp first get eggs in freshwater. Once the eggs hatch, the fry must be moved to saltwater. Then the fry will grow to become mini adults and then they can be moved to freshwater.

Or so I have read and remember.
