Theoretically ....?

HappiestCamper

In theory could a peron keep all of these species in a single tank without interbreeding?

-Caridina caerulea-blue tail shrimp

-Malaya shrimp

-Dark green shrimp or green shrimp (apparently different species with fear they might interbreed with eachother?)

-Neocaridina (red cherry shrimp or snowball shrimp etc)

-Crystal red shrimp or tiger shrimp or Chinese zebra shrimp or Bee shrimp

**bumblebee shrimp seem to be debated as to weather they may breed with the CRS, tiger, CZS and Bee shrimp?

SrI Lanka dwarf shrimp

Keep in mind were talking hypothetical.

I doubt it. But if there is many of each mabee

No. You actually have 3 different shrimp listed that are all capable of interbreeding. It's highly unlikely the single stage shrimp could breed with the others, but crs, rcs, and any other color can and will interbreed.

They would interbreed even if red crystal shrimp are caridina and red cherry shrimp are neocaridina?

I found this, is it acurate?

I think that chart might be about being teammates. I also thought crystal red and red cherry were just different grades of the same shrimp so now I'm entirely confused.
 

HappiestCamper

The site I pulled this link from like isn't posting right but before this chart they specify the chart is to prevent interbreeding. People uses common names get everything all mixed up so my bad for using common names!
 

Wraithen

No worries. I didn't realize we weren't talking on the same line until after you responded.

That chart is accurate to the best of my knowledge.
theoretically You can keep.different shrimp together but like fish the all have different water requirements.

I found the chart after I made the thread, I'm glad it looks okay though!
