    You could get both...they will not hybridize. If I had to pick one I would choose the red cherry shrimp.

    cardina babaulti is a Indian native shrimp and raising shrimplet's is a major pain! the young hatch lings have a larvae stage post being born for a few hours and are quite smaller than RCS babies. RCS on the other hand would be easier to keep an' raise a colony. IMO start off with RCS once the tank matures quite a bit cardina venture will become easier.. :)
