Cleaner & Fire Shrimp Together?

I have a cleaner, peppermints and an emerald crab. Would I be able to add a fire shrimp?

I have a cleaner and fire together. Fire only comes out to eat. The cleaner is all over the place.

I wouldn't add the fire shrimp simply because they hide ALOT. I've never seen any aggression out of them though.
