Breeding ghost shrimp

Hey, I got 10 ghost shrimp and some of them have eggs. How do I hatch them and take care of the baby fry.

They won't live in freshwater, the babies that is. Are the shrimp carrying eggs or are there eggs in the tank?

Read up on Ghost aka Grass Shrimp breeding. There are several look-alike species. The babies have two stages the first stage is a larval stage and is not easy to feed.

Ghost Shrimp can be predatory and everybody eats the tiny larvae, fish love them and other Shrimp eat them as well.

If they are truly freshwater, i suggest making a greenwater culture and then putting the pregnant females in it till they drop.
