2. Fire shrimp: awesome looking but heard they hide a ton, they're also $40
3. Golden coral banded: much much much less aggressive than normal coral bandeds and don't get as huge.

My fire shrimp is always out in the same spot. He also attempts to cleans my finger nails. I've had skunk shrimp in the past and they are a little more active than the fire shrimp.

I'd probably go with the gold coral banded as well, thats because I've never had one. They are really cool looking though. They are all good choices. My skunk cleaner was pretty interesting. He always cleaned my cuticles when my hand was in the tank. Not shy by no means. He also snatched my food out of my corals mouths, and that's why he's gone.

Bri,

When you come to see my tank you can see my fire shrimp. He is out and about a lot but not as much as the skunk I had in my other tank. The bright red color is what sold me on the shrimp adds a lot of interest to the tank.
