i'm so happy people said amanos only will hatch their eggs in brackish water. my tank is a fully planted and fully matured 2 year old tank.my old amanos were blue and huge ( they passed when i went on vacation ) the new amonos we're reddish somehow and are smaller as they were very young when purchased.bought them from the same lfs and same tank.so yes i'm 100% sure they are amano shrimps. i don't know if the color difference is causing it to spawn in soft water.i can only guess but i'm so happy they did.

They do breed, but I'm pretty positive that the larvae can only develop in brackish conditions. Like nerite snails. :/

hmm.. i'm going to try and see if the babies do well in the tank without re-housing it in a brackish set-up.plus it's impossible to catch a single shrimp in a heavily planted 4 footer
