Hello I made new shrimp tank with c.sp. babaulty, Cherry and CRS. As I know they don't crossbreed, but it seems that thay breed harder. When I had cherry alone, every female had allways eggs, but now in new tank only few have.
Can it be dome by stress of other shrimp species in tank? It seem they live together happily :)

In the long run, the more active or aggressive species will make it in a mix tank. c.sp. babaulty should be the winner, then Cherry.

But in your case, breed less in a new tank could possibly due to a different in water parameter?
