ok i always thought that if i house CRS & RCS together they will breed. I read on a post somewhere here, that it's ok to house them together because they will NOT breed. can someone clarify?

also, i checked the compatibility chart from shrimpfarm - http://www.theshrimpfarm.com/articles/dwarf-shrimp-compatibility-chart.php

and saw that the CRS and tiger shrimps have a X in their compatibility. Does this mean they'll breed?! maybe i'm misinterpreting the chart - i thought the green diamond meant they'll breed together..

please confirm!

CRS + RCS = nothing since they don't interbreed, two different species

CRS+tiger = mutt, they will interbreed as they're the same species, offspring could be all kinds of f'd and most don't make it long.

There was a post a few years ago where 1 person said they mated a CRS with an RCS, but no pics, no one else has been able to do it, ect meant it was a no-go.I've kept rcs and CRS together for a yr now and nothing.

Yes, yellows, reds, greens, blue pearls are all neo species and will breed mostly "wild" color neo's which are just brown.
