I hope this helps you.
Haha yes they will cross breed. Called tibees if I'm not mistaken. The shrimp gurus can correct me if I'm wrong. It did answer cuz if both are berried in the same parameters then I'm good to go thanks!

If you make these shrimp happy they will thrive. I almost wiped out my entire colony by being lazy. Keep up with your wc’s and testing. I test every week for Ph, Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia, and Gh. I learned from my mistakes and haven’t been happier with this species. I have some really nice color coming out.

It has been awhile and I have wonderful news. I have got some supreme painted fire Red Neo’s from Nick not too far back. I was looking around the tank last night and cleaning out the intake sponge and something caught my eye. I have floaters that cover about ¾ of the surface of my tank and when I moved them it was like a meteor shower in the tank. A bunch of little shrimp started darting around from the roots. As I looked closer I noticed that some had orange eyes and the others had black eyes. I am glad to see that both my OEBT’s and PFR are breeding strong.
Awesome dude!

dhgyello04 Hello all,
It’s been a while. Since my last post my OEBT’s have exploded in numbers. Here is a pic of my shrimp ball after getting a new feeding dish.


and here is the video

I had to go with a 20L. It's up and running now, but not with all the moss I want. I just have some anubias and java fern. I'm hoping to get some Fissidens fontanus growing on the slate I have. I'll take some photos once I get the plants I want in. I have the cheap LED lights PetSmart sell and will be moving my t5s to the tank for better plant growth. I'm most concerned about the shrimp so growing plants is going to be interesting.

CookieM Nice set up. But do hide the heater, canister filter hoses and power cable. It's a sore eye to see that mess with a nice planted tank.

madness Don: that is great news!

Not only are OEBT really cool looking shrimp but there seems to be a bit of challenge in keeping them properly and getting them to breed so this is a big accomplishment.

Congrats.

Nubster I'm not even sure honestly if any of the trouble has been with tigers but CRS I know were some of the shrimp that people were having problems with. There are a couple lengthy threads over at Shrimp Now!!! and here is another thread. Like I said, it might be something to look into...seems like folks are having mixed results and maybe the hardier tigers aren't affected like the CRS.
