Cleaner shrimp are awesome choices. Peppermint shrimp are nice too but not as out in the open as the cleaners.

They will eat anything that they can get their hands on, especially other shrimp. Great cleaners though, and they are awesome looking.

Most topics Ive seen seem to imply they should be pretty safe. They keep them with the feathers in the LFS, and I've seen pictures of them in many reef tanks. They look great, I've been eyeing them for some time. No plans for more shrimp, so thats not a factor for me.

Unless I get a big STOP in the next hour, I'm going to pick him up.. They have a beautiful 3 inch one, or at least they did. Going to read a little more first though.

I have 10 cleaners in my tank along with 12 peppermint shrimp. The only problem I have had is I now have to feed some corals with a cut off bottle over them. As soon as food hits the water they come running.

If you invest any money into inverts I would get a Cleaner. I have 2 and they do wonders

I'm back with my shrimp and it's floating around the tank getting used to the surroundings. Once I set her - him free, I'll post a pic. If anyone wants to see. I'm such a proud new papa.. Heh..

Now, I just hope the feather duster comes out.

Be sure to acclimate slow.

Still workin on him. I have no drip set up so I'm adding about 1/4 cup - or a little less of water every 15 mins. He has been in there for a while now.. Ill let him go in a few. An hour should be good.

Of course the LFS said 15 mins, and acted all concerned about the crab from hell... One thing I didnt expect was they credited me for both the arrow and the feather duster, even though I didnt bring the feather duster back! I was really surprised 8O . I have a new little piece of LR sitting in a bucket with a PH now...

BTW, the feather duster has come out. He is ok.. A few broken "feathers" but he looks good.

Thanks for the help guys-gals.

OK.. No pics.. Can't get clear ones... Stupid autofocus camera focuses on the glass.

Anyway, all is well.. The shrimp IS a little aggressive, but everyone seems to be getting along fine.

I pd 8.99 for the CB Shrimp and 5.99 for the feather duster - Just for reference Flanque.
