So how long is the gestation period of a ghost shrimp and after the eggs are laid how long til they hatch? Is there any way to speed up the process?

Raising ghost shrimp is very hard in a freshwater tank it needs to be done in brackish water since the larva need nutrients to feed on which is insufficient in freshwater.

Females have a greenish colored saddle like their eggs and they have arcs on their back sharper than the males.
