ive always wanted shrimp and saw they had some really cheap at my local Walmart so I got some ( yeah I know Walmart is horrible ) anyways I would like to learn more about them I have them in a 10 gallon tank. I don’t have a sponge filter at the moment so I just have a fine net over a regular one. My main question is weather or not this is poop or eggs in this photo of one of the ones I got

Yep, those are eggs. Also appears to be a ghost shrimp, so you won't have to worry about overpopulation. It's apparently very, very, VERY hard to get the eggs to hatch and survive in freshwater. Some even say it's impossible.
