Shrimp Compatibility

I have a ten gallon tank that has a small population of chocolate neo's in it right now. Would I be able to add some adult Blue Bee and adult Tiger shrimp or would the three different shrimp breed together.

I used to keep an open mind but my brains kept falling out.

Thanks for the link. So it looks good for placing all three of them in one tank.

they are compatible in that they won't breed with anything else. The chart does not consider different temperaments (ghost shrimp can be aggressive) or water conditions (tigers prefer softer water than Cherries).

Blue Bee and Tiger Shrimp can breed. Both can also breed with Neos, though that is extremely rare (you can find a few recent instances here on this forum).

When it comes to Ghost Shrimp… which species? There are several.

On that note which shrimp Blue Bee or Tiger would be ok in a tank with the following water parameters Ammonia=0, Nitrites=0, Nitrates=5, PH=6.0, GH 3-4

I've read that ghost shrimp will kill and eat RCS.

Out of those two blue bee. Tigers are going to like higher pH. CRS/CBS/Goldens or Taiwans are more suitable for low pH like 6.

Here's a basic guide to params for shrimp
