Adding other shrimp with cherries


So I have a well established 27 gallon tank dedicated for cherry shrimp. I really want to broaden my horizon/experience with some other types of shrimp while still keeping the cherries. What other shrimp could I get that won't cause weird looking cross breeding?

Cherries are neocaridina. Anything besides neocaridina will not crossbreed. Tigers, crystals, and bamboo shrimp are all kinds of shrimp your could also keep in the tank provided their water parameters are met.

Thank you both for the help! I'm still trying to find some locally that I'd like to add.
