Amano shrimp

So my girlfriend has Amano shrimp in a community 20 gallon fish tank and two of the 4 are pregnant.

We did absolutely nothing to cause the breeding and according to what I've read.. They shouldn't have bred otherwise.

They have been pregnant for probably 2 and a half months close to 3.

Will they ever birth? Or is it because they don't have the right conditions of water to do so?

I have a female Amano that's been like that for a few months. I believe that they can become berried in FW but the actual hatching needs to take place in SW.

Idk. I first noticed it in late February and I can't remember if it has been like that the whole time. I have four shrimp in a heavily planted tank and don't always see them.
Edit: I imagine they will have to release the eggs at some point because it would interfere with molting.

I'm guessing they'll drop the eggs and they'll die......

The babies or the mother? I assume you mean the babies die because of the water not being salt.
