Hi folks, can anyone tell me the difference between Neocardina Davidii and Zhangjiajensis varieties?

will these live together?

I bought 4 Zhanjiajensis recently and they are really nice creatures and was thinking of getting a couple more however the online store i bought them from only seems to have the davidiii yellows left.

I was also wondering if someone could recommend reputable sites where I could order some from.

I’m somewhat dubious that these are Neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis (which has been renamed as N palmata , and occasionally N palmata cf. zhangjiajiensisis)
Either way, they would be fine to mix with N davidi (or N heteropoda)
Shrimp naming has been pretty fluid, so many older names are still in use by shippers/retailers
