A question about my new scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp

Well I was at the LFS and saw him there, he had a missing leg so I got a really really good price on him. Anyway my question is will the leg regrow?

He's eating just fine, in fact I think he's gonna be my fav. Its funny as hell to watch him try to catch the food. When a piece of food floats by he jumps off his rock and starts twirling out of control trying to get it because of the current.

Oh another question he likes to climb the corner of the tank where my maxi jet is at could he get stuck or sucked up?

29 gal tank since June 2005
40 lbs of LS
36 lbs of LR
Maxi-jet 1200
Aqua C Remora Skimer
Emporer Bio-wheel (not sure what model but big enough)
1 Pygmy Angle
1 Ocellaris Clownfish
2 Dwarf Red Tip Hermit Crabs

THe Leg will grow back very Quickly. Iguess on the maxi jet it is possible but I figure very unlikely.

I love my cleaner shrimp. HE has so much personality. I even got a rare change to see him clean my clown the other week- I sat across the room looking at my tank for a good half hour and it finally happened!!!

Just be careful when you begin adding corals and anemonoes. If you ever target feed those inverts with large pieces of krill, expect the shrimp to steal and devour the krill. I've had this experience. Plus I don't think my corals enjoy the shrimp on them because they tend to curl up when the shrimp cleans them.
