Is it an emerald mithrax crab that you have? If so--beware! I lost several fish to one before I finally figured out who was doing it. They're fine when they're small, but when they get bigger, they can harm small or slow fish, or even sleeping fish.

The cleaner shrimp, however, is an excellent addition.

**The only problem*** They Take the food away from the corals! They are doing the job but they really bother them and are relentless! It is hard to target feed as you try to chase them off...............
They have many benefits...

I have 3 cleaner and 4 blood red shrimp. I should have got 5 cleaner and 2 blood red instead. the blood bed just doesnt have as much personality as the cleaners do. I have also noticed that the more shromp i have in the tank the more they come out of there hiding places. I think this is because the shrimps are territorial.
