Question What is the best "breading" shrimp?

I'm looking for shrimp that will have lots of babies... I believe that shrimp babies are a good food source for some corals and anemones, as well as some of the smaller fish.
So what type of shrimp is best for that purpose?

It's the Red cherry shrimp, or RCS. The adults can reach up to 1.5 inches (4cm) in length. RCS need no special tanks, foods, dances, or shamans to breed. Tank conditions are very easy to set up. They are also a fun addition to an aquarium and eat uneaten fish food.
