Oh it's an Amano shrimp. Unfortunately, they need brackish water to breed.

Yes. Amano shrimp larvae start off in water with higher salinity and have a complex life cycle

Never mind. The body on the shrimp where it looks like things are growing has turned orange. Like a orange sack in its belly. Is this normal
