Cleaner Shrimp Pregnant?

So my lone cleaner shrimp just molted yesterday aaaaaaaand now it's pregnant...

It lives in my 10G along with a Clown.

Is it strange for a single shrimp to impregnate itself?

Are the eggs fertilised or just eggs?

Should I be doing anything?

Okay then... How about an easier question?

Could the infertile eggs cause any parameter spikes due to rotting or die off?

Your shrimp obviously was sleeping with the clownfish.
That or you have two other options. It came in with eggs or produced them. Either way, with no one to fertilize them it is carrying around eventual fish food...and most likely even if they were eventual fish food.

if she does lay them theyll be fish food, rarely do cleaner shrimp successfully breed anyways.

just a tip, youll get more answers in the future if you arent rude or arrogant in past posts.
