So I have an amano shrimp in my freshwater tank and she looks very pregnant!! I thought they couldn't breed in freshwater, but she definitely is pregnant. Will the babies survive if not in brackish water?

They can in fresh. In fact that's where they breed. They just won't complete the life cycle. They eventually need salt in order to make it. The zoa get carried away through the water to the brackish/saltwater in nature. After the larval stage they go back to freshwater.
