Nothing really. All the neo colors we have are pretty much just mutations of the wild color that have been selectively bred out as most of the pretty neos we have are just color morphs. When you get to the cardina's, you can cross some but it takes a lot of breeding and then you run into fertility problems down the road and it takes a lot time before you have anything really nice looking. Take the tibee, tiger/crs cross. The mostly just look like a tiger with some white on it. Then many generations of cross and back breeding, they start to get the white or pattern to fill in more but a lot of times then offspring can't breed past certain generations. The best way to come up with something is keep breeding cherries until you see a mutation and then try and breed that out. Really it takes thousands of shrimp and years to get anything stable.

Besides, neo's have already been bred to yellow, green, snowball, rili patterns, blue rili patterns, blue pearls, orange rili's are appearing, there isn't many colors left. lol.
