Cleaner Shrimps Active?

I just got a cleaner for a good price 14.99 and was wondering if they are active , I've read that they are more active if you get 2 but 30 is alot of money for a pair of shrimp , but are they active alone?

I have two cleaners and a CB and they are always out. If I clean the tank or put my hand in the tank they will all climb on my hand. It was kinda weird at first, now they are the stars of the tank.

Mine was $20 ( south TX ). 4 days new to the tank. He set up shop and hardly moves far from it. I seen him clean my maroon clown a few times ( very cool ). He molted a few days after being in the tank. This a good sign or bad?
