Bangaii/Pajama Cardinal Question

Are those fish safe with shrimp?

Yes they are unless you have tiny tiny shrimps and massive cardinals but they are considered reef safe so 99% sure they will be fine (1% is the unpredictability that every fish is different)

So they'll be fine with cleaner shrimp and peppermint shrimp? And pistol shrimp?

you'd be surprised by how big pj cardinals can get. They'll eat a shrimp if they can fit it in their mouth. you should be good with the cleaner, not sure about the others.

I have a decent sized bangaii with my cleaner and pistol. No problems. I wouldn't trust him with sexy shrimp, though. And I don't have any peppermint.

3.5" sounds small. but when they are fully grown they are a large bodied fish and as tall as they are long.

I had both species with a coral banded and no issues. I have had a bangaii and an ochre-striped with a skunk cleaner and peppermints without issue. I still have the ochre-striped and he now lives with a skunk cleaner, a fire, and a peppermint without any issues. Definitely add the shrimp first, or the fish will think they are food. I would never trust them with sexy shrimp, however.
