i think my ghostshrimp is haveing babies
well i had bought 3 large ghostshrimp from walmart to add to my tank but one had a really ugly green dark spot inside its uh shoulder area? anyways i put them in a quarentine tank just in case it was an illness and when i looked this morning the dark spot had moved to its tummy and now that i look its shoulder area is red and it looks like it has eggs in its tummy area and its moveing them around?

what do you guys think? eggs or illness?
and if eggs how do i take care of them if anyone knows?
