Will different color neos interbreed?

I have been looking everywhere and can't find an answer I'm wondering if i could have http://www.planetinverts.com/Green%20Shrimp.html and http://www.planetinverts.com/Yellow%20Shrimp.html in the same tank without them making weird colored offspring. Will they keep to themselves or should i pick one or the other?


Oops I'm just blind just saw big als post and cant find a delete button to get rid of this thread. Sorry about that

Yes, all Neos will breed with other Neos.

The Green Shrimp you linked to are Babaulti and will not breed with your Neos.

Thanks I found the chart right after I hit send i didn't realize one was a neo and one was not but that makes me quite happy i think the yellow and green will look amazing with the right plants and black substrate.

Those greens are not always that color of green. They vary some.

Just a warning so that you can adjust your expectations.

They should still suit your needs though.

Good luck.
