Bamboo shrimp

Has anyone ever bred bamboo shrimp? If so how did you do it, I saw they need brackish water but that's about it.

Yeah unfortunately I did research when I first had some.

Apparently majority are wild caught so breeding conditions are unknown, also the larva apparently need brackish/salt conditions to survive.

I just started my research today the lfs where I got mine was saying how they only get them once or twice a year. But people are always asking for them, I know the owner well he was telling me they got 200 or so in lost 10 during quarantine (they do a one week quarantine on all livestock in store). He was selling them for a good price and sold out in under 48hrs. He said if I can breed them he would take as many I could breed or find

Side note: OP thanks for starting this post made my life easier not having to
