The female shrimp will be larger than the males. Also the abdomen region will be a bit more rounded. You may also see several pink/green/blackish eggs the female shrimp is carrying.

If you are going to try to breed ghost shrimp, have to keep in mind that some types of ghost shrimp require brackish water. Also several different types of shrimp sometimes get lumped into the "ghost shrimp" name. So may or may not require brackish water.
