I have no personal experience with amanos but I do have RCS.
Here's some information I found from Amano Shrimp | The Shrimp Farm
"The Amano Shrimp is one of the more difficult shrimp to successfully breed in the home aquarium. The young shrimp do not hatch as small versions of the adults, like a Red Cherry Shrimp does, but they hatch as larva. These larva require salt water to grow to metamorphosis and become freshwater shrimp again."
And they have a 30 day gestation period like mose dwarf shrimp.
In these 30 days I would recommend to refrain stressing the pregant females because if stressed she will just release her clutch and most likely they will die. When doing water changes I would stay away from her. Also I wouldn't be doing too much gravel cleaning since this is where most babies seek cover. They will be so small you will suck them up without knowing.
I know people on here have amanos so they should be able to give you more advice as far as adding salt..etc.
Hope this helps!
