I simply give them hiding spaces (they need to hide after they molt, which it is believed when they attract the male for breeding), keep the tank at about 76 degrees and do 30/40% wc's every week. The tank barely ever sees 5 ppm nitrates. I have found that under these conditions, they breed like there is no tomorrow. I always see at least one adult carrying eggs. As far as telling female apart from male (al least with the RCS) the only difference that I have found through research is seen in the tail. Supposedly one gender has more rounded tail fins where the other gender has more pointy tail fins. I still can not tell the difference until I see a female carting eggs. Anyways, I did a quick search and found this about the ghost shrimp.
