    Hi,
    why do you start again to ask such questions?! You already know the answer and there is no need to ask such a question because we answered it several times in the past. So please tell me what is your intention with such a question?

    regards
    Robert

    Hi,
    you won't get hybrids because a Caridina species can't cross-breed with a Neocaridina species. There are small but important differences in the anatomy of these shrimps. That is also a reason why they belong to different genera.

    regards

    Thanks for the question Robert. So please correct me if i'm wrong - any caridina would breed with different caridina and same for neocaridina?

    It is not a totally true statement, like Yamato and Bee shrimp will not cross.

    And that's because low order vs. high order from the same family?

    They are completely different species of different genus, so therefore. One low, other high order form as you write.

    Hi, I'm kind of new to this shrimp hobby and I would like to know which shrimps can cross breed with CRS? The reason I am asking is because CRS is very expensive and I do not want them to cross breed. Thanks.
