I was looking through flip aquatics and noticed this paragraph

"It is great to be aware of the fact that all Taiwan Bee shrimp can be kept in the same tank with out risk of hybridizing. All Taiwan Bee shrimp share similar genetic lines so they will produce shrimp that look similar to the parents. Red King Kongs, Red Pandas, Black King King Kongs, Black Pandas and Blue Bolts can all be kept in the same aquarium."

How true is this statement?
Does that mean if a blue bolt and bkk breed they have like 50/50 of each type?

Any clue? From what I've read in the past they should hybridize so this news to me, but if true it's pretty awesome.

I can't speak to this specifically but I did read that crystal reds and crystal blacks in the same tanks only produce crystal reds and crystal blacks...
So I have a tank I'm currently letting mature, am working on getting the PH down and I definitely will be experimenting.

I think, maybe all the shrimp you listed are from crystal reds and blacks (I'm no expert and am constantly learning, and don't feel like researching at this moment) so the that may be true.
