Shrimp ok?

i just bought 2 peppermint shrimp for my Nano, one of them seems to have green gunk on his back feet things...haha, not sure what they are called. But i was wondering if these are eggs, or if its something i should be terribly concerned about.

They're eggs. It will start just behind the eyes as a discolored lump. Once the shed, the eggs will migrate down to the abdomen. After a week or so they will either hatch and be released into the water column (if fertile) or the shrimp will eat them if unfertile.
