Very common behavior for Peps to hide and not be seen for weeks at a time. As for CBS I have heard varying reports. I have a CBS, Pepermints and cleaners and all get along just fine. I suspect the CBS may have done in a camelback some time ago though. I have seen the CBS chase others away as they tend to be territorial. If your tank is big enough I think they are all fine together and it has worked for me now for some time witout incident.

Haha mine does the same thing, he cracks me up! Sometimes I have to stick a suction cup that came loose or adjust something in my tank and he jumps right on my hand and starts pickin away.

I had a CBS he was the first shrimp in my tank but was taken out rather quickly when it started messing with my 2 cleaner shrimp. It was an easy decision losing a $6.99 CBS or a $24.99 cleaner

Yeah, 20g is pretty small for multiple shrimp. No room for territotial behavior,
