Amano shrimp are also in that same genus and require saltwater to breed, and they don't interbreed with other Caridina species, so I don't think pinnochio shrimp will either. The taxonomy of some of these creatures we keep in aquaria can be rather fuzzy, so I wouldn't put too much importance on the same genus factor if they're morphologically not all that similar.
