yes. Though since they are the same species it isn't really interbreeding, it is more muddling the color genetics.

same thing as mixing 2 different types of guppies it muddies up the genes and in the case of endlers makes them worth less to collectors

it's a good way to develop a new strain. Most will be mud but some might surprise you.
