Keeping blue bolts and pintos?

Hi everyone so I'm getting back into keeping shrimp after a couple years off and I was just curious, what would happen if I kept blue bolts and pintos together? I really wanted to keep black and white pintos with blue bolts but I'm unsure if it'll create ugly hybrids or not? Let me know thanks :) 

Mainly just wondering if I can keep them together like you would keep blue bolts and king kongs and red wines?

When crossing TB and Pintos. From my experience, you'll get both types. Pinto and TB. Just know the TB will carry the pinto gene as it's a some what of a pinto mischling now.

Will some of the offspring look like mischlings though? Or will they still look good or like one of the parents? Thanks for the help :)

 What is meant by mischling is they have the genes. They will look like TB but have pinto genes.

I keep my Red belly pintos and blue bolts together now. 

Have gotten a few Mischling types, a few TBs and a few crazy looking fishbone/striped patterns have came out so far. 

Think that I am on the 3rd generation so far.

Looks really cool to me.

Wow sounds cool! Could you share some pics of the offspring you've gotten?

I really have been thinking about mixing red pintos and blue bolt shrimp. Any ideas of what outcome I would get from this? I know they'll cross breed most likely but what would the offspring look like from these two opposite colored caridina shrimp? I am not a huge fan of the mischling look that shrimp have. I guess I am a little confused on the topic of selective breeding or cross breeding shrimp lol

  Find DET's pinto project posts on here.

 You will see what happens when you start crossing breeds.
