    So the female I got is carrying. Her belly is moving in like a wave movement? What's going on?

    Her eggs are on her legs. You are watching her legs move and the eggs with them :)

    That's creepy. Hahaha. Is she trying to lay them?

    I don't think so. I think ghost shrimp carry the eggs on their legs until they hatch they don't "lay" them anywhere per say.

    I read they fan them which is probably the wave movement you see.

    It kind of looks like fanning. She was doing that in the bag aswell as in the tank

    She is fanning and circulating her eggs and keeping them clean. Mine do that when they are berried. Alison
