can pinocchio shrimp breed with other caridina?
I know the pinocchio shrimp is a Caridina genus so it should be able to interbreed with other Caridina. I wanted to put some into my new shrimp tank. I have some now as algae eaters in my larger tank. They do a great job and have not kicked the bucket yet even with rams, tetras, and honeycomb catfish in the tank.
I do know that the pinocchio shrimp cannot breed in freshwater since the offspring need saltwater to survive. But can they breed with say a tiger shrimp and create offspring that way?
My gut says no breeding is possible but I'd like to see what other people think or know for certain.
