I have a well established 10 gallon freshwater tank with 8 rasboras and 2 amano shrimp. One of the shrimp clearly has eggs but the water is not brackish which is what I thought was needed for them to breed. I have a 5 gallon that has 1 bamboo shrimp in it and I am wondering if I should move the amano with eggs in there, but it is also not brackish. Not sure what to do here, but would love to raise a bunch of shrimp!

Thanks for any guidance

They will carry eggs in freshwater, the larvae need brackish water to live though. So they won't survive.
