Are These Amano Shrimp Eggs?

    Are these eggs? They look so dark ?
    What will happen to the eggs if the shrimp can't breed?

    And the next question is, does anyone have bred Amano shrimp before? Is there an instruction available on how to set up a saltwater environment?

    Thanks! IMG_20170411_085158.jpg

    Looks like it.

    They will just drop.

    If you go to "Youtube" and google "How to breed Amano Shrimp " there are lots of instructional videos.

    It will be very difficult not because of setting up a brackish tank environment but feeding the larvae as well. It will require a lot of work.

    I have five Amano shrimp and four are with eggs! I have other tank mates in with them and they eat the eggs after they are expressed. The hatching process is too difficult for me but I have two friends that have success breeding them and hatching them to adults.
