Adding a cleaner shrimp

So i added a red fire shrimp a couple of months ago and that was the last time i saw it so i thought it had died but i just saw it last night pop out from behind the rear rocks for a split second. Didnt know it would be like that. I want to get a cleaner shrimp since the seem more active and are not shy. Would the fire shrimp attack the cleaner?

I have two cleaners and a fire shrimp in my 40g and they don't bother each other at all. The cleaners sit on one side and the fire has his own cave he hides in on the other side.

They should be fine together. Skunk cleaners are very social and do better in pairs and threes. If you have a large enough tank, I suggest getting 3.
No coral banded shrimp though. They can get nasty.
