Hi can anyone ID these 2 shrimp? The larger one with eggs looks to have some clear gel/algae growth on part of its body, stuck to the shell. I live in NSW, Australia. These are wild shrimp caught from a very big pond. They are 2cm long and these were the biggest I found, the rest were smaller and had very little colouration.

ps what are the floating green balls? algae I assume? I'm going to be very careful to not let a drop of the pond water in my tank.

they were returned home today I don't want to risk it.
Once my shrimp tank has cycled I'll get new ones and thoroughly check them before bringing them back.

They look like feeder shrimp (a brackish living glass shrimp). Don't know the genus or species.
