I do believe that there is some risk with dottybacks and cleaner shrimp. Not 100% though. Also, with a 55g, I reccomend you keep only one dotty back. A really nice dotty back is the Diadem. Mine died less than a week ago He was in my 55g.

Thank you. Also, I forgot to add, since they are pretty aggressive fish, I recommend adding one to your tank last.
