    Hi guys. My ghost shrimp currently has eggs and i was wondering how i care for them when they hatch. Theyre currently in a 7gallon heated tank with a sponge filter and live plants

    I’ve never done it myself, but from what I understand the free swimming little larvae require brackish conditions to survive.

    Ghost shrimp are freshwater; it’s amano fry that need brackish to develop.
    If your tank’s been going for a while, you likely have enough biofilm/microorganisms for the fry. I wouldn’t worry too much.
