Does anyone know if you can breed an Orange shrimp with a Green Jade?
I also have a Black Rose, didn't know if that could also be a candidate.

I haven't been able to find much information on the cross-breed, or even if anyone has done it. I know the Green Jade shrimp originally came from Orange and Yellow shrimp though.
Wasn't sure if that would be an accidental quick route to a wild variation, or if I have an equal chance at more Orange or Green Jades.

Well if they're the same species, then yes, you can breed them together. BUT, the question you probably want to ask is "will I get good offspring out of this mating"...which has a different answer.

Given that it's a green shrimp mixed with an orange shrimp, I'm willing to bet that it's just a quick route to a wild variation.
