There is a huge choice of shrimp types that can be kept in aquariums at home in a few species groups.
Any types within the same species, e.g. Neocaridina davidi, will all be able to breed together, but you cannot breed a Neocaridina with a Caridina.
It's important to look into the general species requirements if you're looking at choosing a new type of shrimp. If you want to use tap water at home for your tank and live in an area with very soft water, you might find it easier to keep Caridina types instead of Neocaridina.
The Taiwan Bee shrimp are also sometimes known as soft water shrimp, as they prefer water with a lower mineral content than Neocaridina shrimp for example. This can make this species slightly more difficult to keep, as if the tank water gets too hard it could cause issues with molting or reduce breeding.

Neocaridinas are a fantastic beginner shrimp as they can handle quite a wide range of water parameters, from the slightly acidic soft water to fairly alkali hard water. This is a useful feature of the species as it means there's less risk of problems with molting than with some other species.
