Itís a female carrying eggs on its swimmerets (series of appendages on the underside of the tail).
They may eventually hatch, however, the larva go through a free swimming stage and are subject to predation (and getting sucked into the filter). Plus, they are essentially plankton feeders at that state and will usually starve unless an adequate food source is available.
