depending on what fish you got in the tank with them and how much cover you have (plants, caves, driftwood) they might not make it.............some fish will eat them if given the oppurtunity, so if you want to raise them till they are big enough to survive in the tank with fish, i would setup a small tank for them to hatch and grow out in.....

i decided breeding them is not worth it

breeding them is not so hard. I put a female with eggs in a jar with cycled water and I put some stones in there from an established fish tank and it had tiny ghost shrimp after a while.

i believe baby ghost shrimp only survive in brackish water. im not 100% sure on that though.

I think you might be thinking of Amano shrimp, onefish............Ghost or Glass shrimp will hatch successfully in freshwater.............Hatching time can be from 2 to 4 weeks, depending on when you noticed them berried up.....
