Under the right conditions, they spread like weeds.

fire, peppermint, and cleaners are all reef safe shrimp. Just watch out for camel shrimp. they look similar to peppermints and will eat your corals. Just look up some pictures so you know the difference before you buy. The camel shrimp will have a hump on the back as the name implies. You might want to give your tank a little time to settle down since you have been adding stuff recently.

Not sure how much they cost but make sure you acclimate it for a long time. Inverts are usually a little more touchy about changes in salinity. Do you know how to do the drip acclimation method?
