I have been looking into getting some shrimp and what I read is that they're not compatible do to crossbreeding. What is so bad about crossbreeding?

There isn't anything ob
First of all, crossbreeding results in organisms that are "unnatural", and I have found that most aquarists that are serious tend to want to keep things as natural as possible.
Secondly, crossbreeding makes it confusing for buyers of hybrid young, especially when sellers mislabel the animals as pure. This is an increasing problem with Synodontis species.
The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian.

I like variety and the shrimp I am interested in can crossbreed which i dont mind.
I don't plan on selling them unless I start getting overrun then I would sell them as feeders, I heard after I posted that the offspring were ugly lol. I love your breeding a wiener dog and saint bernard. I could almost imagine what it would look like.
