Cherry Shrimp vs. Crystal Shrimp vs. Bee Shrimp?

taylormarie213

Sorry to ask such a dumb question but I am brand new when it comes to shrimp. I know they are different species but other than that, what are the differences?
What are their water parameters specifications? Are cherry shrimp and bee shrimp the same species or are crystal shrimp and bee shrimp the same?
I tried researching a little but I'm still confused.

Thank you for your time and any other info and advice is appreciated!!!

Red crystal and black bee are the same group Caradina and cherry are Neocaradina, crystal &bee need RO water to survive where cherries will do ok in most tap waters, so you need to find out what your tap water parameters are before you start
PH,GH/KH, will be your start

The Temperature in your climate is another consideration. If you have a very hot climate you will need a cooler in summer to keep crystals and bees from people I have listen to.
Cherrys are much more able to put up with warmer temperatures. Although not being ideal cherry can make do in tropical fish temperatures.
