Nevermind, I found out which are compatible or not. Basically there are only 2 genuses of shrimp. Neocaridina and Caridina. And the 2 cant be housed together.

The only ones on this list that I know of that would not work with Cherries are the Blueberry. The are both in the Neocaridina family.

Curious on the Red Fire and Marble though. I know of salt species but not familiar with freshwater unless the Red Fire is a Sulawesi variety.

The others (one species of course) can be kept with cherries.

Thanks Archer+James. Yea, I noticed some were saltwater after I replied to my own post. Blue shrimps are so hard to find. Blue tigers dont exist anywhere around me that I know of. So I really wanted the blueberry... to find out they are a Neocardina... :(. I might settle for Crystal Red and Crystal Black.

I see Blue Pearls every once in a while and Blue Tigers even fewer. Of course the BT's are a bit on the pricey side to boot.

I've got quite a bit of CRS/CBS if you do decide you want to go that route. Will be doing some thinning when I get back from holiday over the weekend.

Are their requirements the same as RCS to breed? I have a pH of 7.0 in my tank and I think its too basic for them.

This guy is in Southern Cal and is a good guyto deal with and well respected on onther forum.

I found this on AB.

I would definitely buy them but I dont have a credit card/debit card :(. And I know nothing of shipping. Whatever I get for my tanks tend to be local :p

I have found (at least in my case) that they are very prolific with PH ~ 7.4 and Temp 76-78. Started with (12) sub adults and soon after (5) berried up. Seems like they all dropped at the same time. ;o). Quite a few berried at the moment as well.
