    I have fire red shrimp in my tank and they are breeding and doing well with nice red on them.

    Interested to add different coloured green/red shrimp in but I read that those green/yellow/golden back shrimp sold at LFS are actually cherry grade shrimp and should not criss breed with fire red as their offsprings colours especially the fire red will be badly affected

    Any advice pls

    Thanks

    Re: Green/Red/Yellow Shrimp

    To my understanding, as long as the shrimps are not from the same genus, they will not crossbreed. Look for the list of binomial name (scientific name) for shrimps. You can easily find it from Wikipedia. For example your fire red shrimps which is a selectively breeded from red cherry shrimps have the name Neocaridina Heteropoda bar Red. Sorry if I have speaking mistake here. Any Neocaridina will cross breed with it. CRS on the other hand called Caridina C.f..... so a Caridina won't cross breed with a Neocaridina.

    Chose your shrimps based on this should help you. But you will soon ask yourself how do I tell if a Caridina is not a Neocaridina? Actually, I can't tell the different between a Malayan shrimps and a Cherry shrimps. 🙄 So don't know how to select as well.

    Never see Seaview carry leh. Heard from the C328 that nowadays not many people ask for Malayan. She never keep stock. Will be a lost for her for sure if she keep Malayan.
