Keeping multiple shrimp species


Is it possible keep multiple species of dwarf shrimp in the same tank without risk of them inter-breading? Say... CRS, RCS, and OEBT?

Or do some species interbreed while others do not?

Its possible to keep some together, but some have way different water parameter needs than others do, even if they wont interbred and create muts.

Is Malaya the same as Malawa? Got my answer. Maybe Malawa should be added to the list since it can be with most other shrimp.

This goes into parameters. Mutts will be the same as their parents when it comes to params and who they can be housed with.

I'm a little confused. If I use this chart and put two or three species in a tank, they will or will not interbred and create mutts?

If it says 'no' that means they will interbreed. Or not necessarily will but CAN.
