I think this chart is based off of interbreeding and not behavioral compatibility.

Cherries are always a good choice.

i'd say any other shrimp wouldnt interbreed with amanos or ghosts so nurturing mutt shrimp wouldnt be an issue.

Moreso you want shrimp that closely meet the current environmental parameters in the tank. Neos are a good hardy shrimp that survive a vast range of PH, temps, gh/kh... They come in reds, oranges, greens, yellows, browns, white, blue, striped (rili) and likely others i have missed. now pick one!

Any specific color your want? Red? Yellow? Black/White? I think you should base it off that and then pick the shrimp and research if they're compatible water/temp wise. Compatibility wise, they should all be good because amano/ghosts are nice. I had CRS and Amanos together for a while.
