3 kind of shrimps in one tank?

correct me if i'm wrong
1 kind of neo. shrimp (red rilli, rcs , yellow , snowball)
1 kind of Caridina babaulti (green , black , indian)
1 kind of CRS or tiger shrimp (regular or oebt)
i can keep 3 kind of shrimp in one tank and they wont interbreed
right???

if so, how about selling shrimps as a package
10 RCS (high grade) , 10 green babulti and 10 tiger shrimp for 50
10 snowball , 10 black babaulti and 8 CRS for $50
10 yellow , 10 black babulti and 8 OEBT ???? not ready yet lol

good idea?

Sure, you can keep those species together. I don't know whether selling them as a package will do you any good though, honestly. Most people like to pick and choose their shrimp species, and being locked into a particular set is not going to help draw customers. For a good price though, who knows?

I think you should just do $xxx, pick 10 from the neo, 10 from the balb, 8 from the caridina and let people mix and match what they want.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

They will not interbreed in the same tank. Heck, you can add malawas and keep four types of shrimp in the same tank !

As for selling, I think getochkn is correct. Let them choose, and you'll get much more profit

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

You can also add some Amanos for 5 species (but they don't easily breed)

Seconding sayurasem. I've had a breeding colony of ghosts in the same tank as my cherries for several months now and I have yet to have a single problem...

Do microcrabs count as shrimp for the purposes of this discussion?
