If I put the black and red version of Neocardina Heteropoda together can I expect red and black offspring? Meaning solid red and solid black

more than likely wild colored shrimp. might take a generation or to might be first time crossing. neo's are all color morphs of the same shrimp so it will revert back to natural color with crossing

Thanks once I thought about it that seemed to be the logical conclusion. Decided to keep them separate. Thanks!

If you want to have black and red together, blue diamonds allow you to do that without reverting. You do have to do a bunch of culling though.
