Ghost shrimp/Java moss

I've got a bunch of java moss and a sponge filter in a 10. I put some ghost shrimp (including a few berried females) in there. I'm wondering if the moss will provide enough protection/food for survival of the larvae stage.

For obvious reasons, its impossible to know how many survived but just a few min ago (when not even looking for them) I noticed at least one that made it into the adult stage.

With this success, I'm thinking that I may try some high demand shrimp on a larger scale to breed/sell. Any suggestions?

How fast do they reproduce

I haven't done a water change in 4 or 6 weeks (not sure which).

The tank is nearly full of moss, but I can see babies without effort, and the Java Moss is pearling.

they reproduce quickly. i believe once the female has eggs it takes abt 3 weeks for them to hatch. and u can see the eggs inside of her and u can see her constantly fanning them its quite cool. why is ur java moss like that?
