    I have Red Cherry Shrimp in my 10G and I was wondering what other colorful shrimp could I get that won't cross bred with the Red Cherries?

    If you don't want your RCS to crossbreed, you're limiting some of your options. May I ask why you don't want them to interbreed?

    You could try some different colors of Tiger Shrimp or Amano Shrimp if you don't want them to interbreed.

    If you don't mind interbreeding, there are yellow shrimp, blue pearl shrimp, and snowball shrimp.

    The yellow , blue pearl, and snowball shrimp where slectivly bred to bring out those colors, cross breeding them would undo that resulting in undsirable brown shrimp.

    Have you consitered crystal shrimp? They come in a few colors like the neocaridinas do.

    I don't want them cross breeding because I don't want ugly colored shrimp.
    So can I keep RCS with any color crystal shrimp and they won't cross breed?
