Added 10 cleaner shrimp today (cool pic)

I thought cleaners did not get this big? The tang is around 5"

Yeah, they get big. Mine are about 3" and 2".

My question is do you get bulk discounts when you buy 10 at a time?

With as much as I spent on corals this month, I am starting to get the bulk discount.

Brenden, that is indeed a pretty cool pic! I don't have any cleaner shrimp. I have one CBS and five peppermints. Should (or could) I also add a cleaner?

That is up to you. I have never heard of anyone having a problem with peppermints or cleaners. Have heard several complaints on a CBS though. I also added 10 peppermints today but they went into the rocks. You Can't tell good from the pic but the convict is actually laying down on the rock wanting the shrimp to get on him. 5 of them where in a cave together earlier. It was like a car wash. A fish would go in and stop and they would go at it.

Haven't had a bit of a problem with my CBS. He was in my first group of residents, in the cleaner crew. Has never bothered anyone, and has quite the personality, always coming out to be hand-fed.

Funny about the peppermints, mine did the same thing....I was wondering if they'd all perished. But now at feeding time they're right there, going at it with the whole crew. They do still stay pretty much hidden most of the time though.

But I think I meant to ask: would all these shrimp get along together, including the cleaner?

I do not have a CBS so I can not say on its behalf. My peppermints and cleaners get along fine so far. When the peppermints were put in the tank one held onto the net. I reached in to remove it with my hand. It started cleaning my hand and would not quit. I finally had to firmly shake it off. I have heard of peppermints doing this but had never seen it in person.
