Shrimp Id And Parameters


Hey all! I have a couple questions. First can someone help me confirm ID on my shrimp? They were sold to me as Green Jade shrimp but I'm not sure if that's accurate. The original 4 I bought all died but one females eggs hatched the night before she died and I was able to get about 30 of them to this point.

Also I would like to know optimal water parameters for breeding. These guys are about 4 -5 months old and getting very big. The females anyways. I want to make sure they have the best water to promote breeding once they are mature enough.

This will be my first time trying to breed and I'm trying to get a better understanding on how things like water hardness and TDS affects them.

I tested today and the results are

Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 30-40
PH 8
Alkalinity 150ppm
Total Hardness 200ppm

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
