Ghost shrimp

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to induce breeding with my ghost shrimp?

Just keep them healthy and happy, it'll come eventually. They don't have a spawning season or trigger, they just spawn when they are mature enough to

It seems like they saddle but never berry. I just started a small colony in a 20 standard, maybe I'll have better luck.

The shrimp do readily molt, but I cant be so sure about the males. It makes me wonder if Wally world sells males. My plans were to buy a butt load more and hope for the best in the male department.
