Dwarf Shrimp Compatibility Chart - Tool

This chart was designed as a quick reference for freshwater dwarf shrimp compatibility.  Even though all of these shrimp will live together without causing deaths, this chart is intended to prevent dwarf shrimp hybridization.  .

We also would like to offer our online tool, which some users find easier to use. Simply select a species from the dropdown menu and a list of compatible shrimp will appear.
