Most caridina will cross with tigers, crystals, taiwan bees, being the main groups of those that people keep and they will readily breed, normally not looking anywhere near as nice as the parents.

Neo's won't cross breed with caridina's, but their params don't really overlap that much, so if you are keeping 1 kind or another, you are going to tailor the water to them and the others won't be as happy in it.

There are exceptions to the above but for the most part, neo's like higher ph, harder water. Caridina like soft, low ph water.

Caridina's are also harder to keep, more delicate and the neo's are usually considered the starter or beginner shrimp.
