Buying shrimp help

Alright I have some questions about shrimp. Can I mix my shrimp like fire coral banded and skunk? Or are you suppose to stick with one type? Haveing a variety of different shrimp sounds like it will make the tank look better. Thankd

Depends on the shrimp. Coral banded doesn't play well with others.

If you get a coral banded they will likely kill other inverts or shimp. The fire shrimp and skunk will be fine together

My blood shrimp killed all my peppermints and cleaners, so it's not always the case.... Depends on the individual specimen. Like my bi-colour angel, kills any new arrivals in my tank, but leaves the existing fish alone.
