    Default Can blueberry shrimp and cherry shrimp interbreed?

    Hi, I was wondering if blueberry shrimp and cherry shrimp are compatible or will they breed together (like yellow shrimp)?

    I was thinking about buying a few blueberry's (they look too cool!) Information about them is sort of scattered and varies... does anyone have any experience with these guys? Do their offspring show the same blue color?

    Thanks!

    From what i have read, it's the dwarf shrimp which have the tendency to interbreed. Haven't heard of blueberry shrimp, so they may have a more common name which falls into this category.


    Shrimp and snail junkie... What can I say, I like the little things in life.
