coral banded shrimp compatibility

I already have a skunk cleaner shrimp, he's been in the tank for 3 days now and he hides a lot. I was thinking about getting another and I really like the CBS but I'm reading mixed views. I have 2 clowns and a neon goby so far and want to stick with small fish. Would the CBS be a bad idea for my small fish? Could I do another cleaner?

I dont know about for small fish but I would be concerned for other shrimps and crabs. They (CBS) are quite mean to other inverts and if you are talking other shrimp I would consider not getting it.



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

I had a pair of cbs that killed any other shrimp (except for the pistol shrimp). They were removed to other quarters. A single cbs may live in harmony with others, but I wouldn't cont on it.

Yeah CBS are nasty buggers. I had an Anthias that annoyed mine to the point of attacking the Anthias!
