From what I've read, they do perform some cleaning functions in the wild but almost never in the aquarium. I have a mated pair and I have yet to see them clean any of my fish.

Mine molt pretty frequently and I generally just leave the molted shell in the tank. It's gone in a day anyway so i assume someone is eating it.

Don't plan on adding any other shrimp if you have CBS. I had a mated pair I had to move to a separate tank. They killed any peppermint or other shrimp I put in the tank. Now I have 2 skunk cleaners and a group of 5 peppermints in the main tank.
