Shrimp That Won't Interbreed With Neocaridina In Same Tank

MaximumRide14

I have a ten gallon tank that's practically empty, except for some small Bloody Mary shrimplets. I don't want to buy any more Bloody Mary shrimp, but are there any other kinds of shrimp I could also keep in there that won't interbreed? I know no neocaridinas, but I know of other shrimp too (caridina, tiger, etc.) They would have to live in the same conditions and all that. Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks.

Yamato certainly will not interbreed with them.

caridina, and amonos do not

Will these be fine in similar conditions to neocaridina? pH is around 8.2-8.4 last time I checked, and temps are 78-80.

I don't think that caridina will but amonos should

Amanos are a great co-inhabitant.
No bee type caridina, however if you can get your parameters down to below 5 KH and below 7 GH ish, you can keep tigers, which are a type of caridina. They can live and breed in something between bee and neo parameters, though lower end is preferred

Is there any way to get the KH and GH lower?

Cut with RO, pretty much
