Healthy green eggs or not? What's going on with this shrimp?

Hi, I'm a new shrimp keeper and I've attached several photos of the shrimp in question. She has had eggs for a while and they've gone from yellow to green. A couple seem to be hanging pretty far down too. Is this OK or is she infected with fungus? I have her isolated from the tank and am concerned. Thanks for your guidance!

Look like healthy eggs to me, no signs of ellobiopsidae. Sometimes shrimp have green eggs, not sure why, usually in lighter colored shrimp but def not the case with this one. Eggs look good and I would expect them to hatch soon.

Thanks for the response! Is it normal for them to be hanging so far off of her like that?

She looks to be an immature female thats not got her act together, the chances are those couple will be lost unless she can manage to sort them out, its quite common for this to happen so ont worry.

yep, as richiep said, I get hanging eggs or some that fall off on younger females pretty often. they get better as they get older
