Coral Banded Shrz-impz

I need some advice and opinions concerning Coral Banded Shrimp. I'm thinking of adding one to my 75 gallon reef, but of course I'm very concerned about my tank's environment and want to make sure that this type of shrimp would be a good additive.

Below is my current live stock:
120 lbs of Fiji and Tonga live rock, 110 lbs of live sand, 1 Bicolor Blenny, 1 Six Line Wrasse, 1 Yellow Watchman Goby, 1 Cleaner Shrimp, 1 Tiger Pistol Shrimp, 3 Peppermint Shrimp, 4 Emerald Crabs, 12 reef hermits, 12 snails, and many Corals.

I just added a coral banded shrimp to my system...same size and close to the same stock list. You should be fine. Post some pics of your tank so we can have a peak! Good Luck...Lando

In a smaller tank the CBS would fight with and probably kill your other cleaner shrimp, they're mean buggers. I would imagine in a 75 gallon run ins will be less of a problem.
