I kept both together for nearly 10 months. My personal recommendation is a big no if you want either species to thrive. Otherwise, it's likely the cherries will outcompete the crystals. Just don't expect much breeding and if they do, low survival rates in the offspring in the crystals.

Also, crystals like cooler temps while cherries prefer slightly warmer. And I've noticed crystals doing better in soft water whereas cherries enjoy more neutral water.

However, if you aren't fussy about having both do well, then you can keep them together. Ive seen some people keep both with moderate success.
