    Not likely any of the baby shrimp will survive, a lot of different shrimp get lumped into the name "ghost shrimp" by stores, many of these will require brackish water if trying to breed them. Ghost shrimp go through a larval stage will stay really close to the surface of the water and feed off of whatever they can find. No need to target feed them, any mature tank should have enough nutrients for the shrimp in it.

    here is some more info on ghost shrimp

    I have like 8 pregnant "ghost shrimp" and I would be really bummed out if nun of them survived. I could get brackish water... But would I have any way of making sure that some will survive?

    No way to know for sure. The baby shrimp will go through a larval stage, then eventually grow into their adult form. Adding some floating plants would help, and if the water was a bit brackish.

    If you really want to keep a colony of shrimp, try red cherry shrimp. They don't go through a larval stage and show up as miniature versions of the adults. Very prolific breeders.

    Some sort of water agitation would be good. Though I have kept shrimp in smaller 2g tanks with just an air stone running. I just keep the tanks at room temperature, so don't use heater. Many shrimp have a fairly wide range of temperatures they can be kept at.

    Ammonia 0ppm
    Nitrite 0ppm
    Nitrate 0 - 5ppm is ideal, 10 ppm is acceptable but time to do a water change.
    pH varies greatly. My 55 gallon is at 7.6pH and my shrimp tank is at 6.6pH.

    No copper allowed for shrimp. Watch medications and fertilizers.

    While I was looking around the net for different specilized shrimp food for my CRS, I came upon this food for larval stage shrimp which seems to make things easier for the home aquarium.

    Read the last paragraph clainbro2. No brackish water needed.




    MOSURA SHRIMPTON is a artificial planktonic food suitable shrimps of all stages including shrimp larvae. It composes of high level of micro-encapsulated, spirulina, chlorella and other ingridents. The high stability micro-encapsulated food contains 12 amino acid and high unit of Vitamin C and E. Vitamins C prevent shrimp in shrimps and vitamin E can increase cellular metabolism, thus improve survival rate. Spirulina and chlorella contains high level of protein, minerals, cholorophyll, that promotes increases vatality and promote metabolism. Shrimpton has Unknown Growth Factor on shrimps and shrimplets.

    Shrimpton eliminates the need to grow and harvest plankton for shrimps feeding.

    It demystifies the need of brackish water to develop some species shrimp larvae in captivity. In most cases, shrimp larvae die in captivity because lack of minute size food. Shrimpton food sizes range from 8um to 200um which is an idea food size for all stage of shrimp larvae.

    It is also an ideal food for fan or filter shrimps, Atyopsis species
