coral banded shrimp questions

Will a coral banded shrimp bother feather dusters?

Will he bother other shrimp?

Will he be able to defend him self against fish that may think he looks tasty....like a pink spotted goby?

Thanks

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

Mine has never touched anything that I know of. Cool creature. I did manage to pull a pincher off mine trying to catch him one time, it molted back within three weeks to it's original size

Mine is fine as well. I have two cleaners a blood shrimp and two peppermint shrimp. My CBS has never bothered any of these. He leaves my corals and fish alone as well. In fact, he even cleans my copperband butterfly.

I haven't had a problem with mine. I've got him in a 20 gal with a pepermint shrimp.


HOWEVER, A jaw fish did die in the tank and the CBS decided that he belonged to him......... he carried him around for about 2 days before he finally finished him off. I didn't know wether or not to laugh or freak out because there was a slow rotting fish in my tank.

They are totally cool though. I would reccomend one to anybody. some peole say they aren't reef safe, but those people have never been pinched by one......... I have. Gettting bitten by a Maroon clown hurts a lot worse(and that didn't hurt at all really). So yeah they are territorial, but I don't really see them doing any real damage to anything.

Then again, you may get a super monster CBS on steroids that destroys your whole tank and kills you in you sleep.
