I am commenting according to general shrimp behavior. I have no real experience with ghost shrimps.
Firstly, you don't want shrimp to drop eggs. They should carry eggs until they hatch. Then babies will scatter.
Most shrimps are canibals and will eat it's own kind - including offspring (especially during molting). You will need thick bushy plants or whatever hideouts for small shrimps to hide, dash away, or molt (other shrimps will attack molting shrimps).
They will unlikely eat foods that can swim away. Worms, flakes, or veggies (not sure what is best) work better.
Use filters, probably sponge is better - they need moving water or oxygen supply. Or you can also use very shallow water with floating plants for shrimp to stay near water surface.
Again, I have never dealt with ghost shrimps. But I had some experience with common pond shrimp, cherry and crayfish . . . Which IMO are similar in terms of living conditions
