Could any shrimp be considered a cleaner shrimp or just the one classified "cleaner shrimp"

Lysmata amboinensis are the true cleaners. You can see them here

My Fire Shrimp (Lysmata debelius) also clean my fish, you can see them here.

And thats about it. There are other, but not common to the hobby.
