Fairly new to the Shrimp keeping scene with only 6 month down. Have accidentally killed a few due to molting issues but a good test kit has seemed to help me solve this. I have been keeping (Black, Chocolate Brown, Blue) Diamond shrimp, Orange Sunkist shrimp, Bloody Mary shrimp, Blue Dream, Carbon and Blue rilli shrimp. I am not killing them now and the colony seems to be growing so i must be doing something right.

Hello Sabertooth,

Welcome to Shrimp-Attack and thanks for all the great content, looking forward to your next post.

Seems you really like your Neocaridina.   :)

Hey sabertooth, sounds like you have got the technique down. The way I'm reading your post is that you have all those varieties housed in one tank, am I reading that right?
I'm not always right, but I'm NEVER wrong!

I have a community tank "skittles tank" of mixed neos that i started around October last year after watching Shrimp Lab and L.R.Bretz's Aquatics youtube's for a bit of fun and well as line specific tanks. The community tank of neo's throws about 10% wilds and is in its 2nd&3rd round of mixed births. The yellows are the first to wash out a bit in a mixed tank and you start to see them transition to green but all the others are still strong colours. 
Also just started another community tank last month of cardinia's, Tangerine and orange eyed blue/blond tigers mixed in with crystal red/black shrimp all kept in regular tap water as an experiment. The bloke i got the cardinia's from was growing them in ph7.4, gh6,kh2, so similar to the tap water in my area. Fingers crossed i get births.
If i get some good colours from the mixed tanks i will move them to a line tank and grow them out.

Very interesting, I have been contemplating putting a bunch of mixed colors into a tank conducting just this type of experiment, based on what you type I have decided to do just that, thanks.  :D

Very cool, I might have to start my own skittle tank, any tips for a complete newbie to shrimp keeping!
