Mixing red and blue rili shrimp


I currently have red rili in a tank and just picked up 4 berried blue rili at a lfs. Can I add them into the red rili tank or should I keep yen separate?

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they will breed and make red rilis, blue rilis and blue bodied red rilis.

As Long as the babies are blue red or mixed. I'm good.

Is it like mixing CRS/CBS where babies can be either? I just don't want generic babies

you will get a mix of red and blues. mine were funny over time all mine turned blue. then a while later they went back to red. im not talking about color change shrimp but all i started with was red rili and over time the blue color became dominate where i was no longer getting red rili just blues. then a while later they started spitting out the red rili again

Thanks guys! they are all happily in one tank.. Ill have to remove the CPD's before the babys hatch. (doubling as a breeding tank)..

But who could resist buy 4 berried females! Turns out 3 are blue rilis and one looks like a red with blue eggs..(rather then yellow as most red rillis.. so maybe has already been mixed)
