Cross breeding

Recommended Posts


Hello, I am new to the shrimp keeping hobby and I was wondering what you can cross breed with ghost shrimp, any suggestions? Does anyone know of any other compatible shrimp for cross breeding?

You can cross breed them with any other Palaemonetes species. 

But it's not worth it. They are generally clear bodied and the result will be the same, a clear bodied shrimp.

Trying to cross breed them with Caridina or Neocaridina, will result in rather bland looking shrimp as well.

So not much reward for the effort.
