I can move all my shrimp to the refuge if needed....but I've heard he is fine with cleaner shrimps as he looks at them as a helper not food

From my experience with lion fish they always go after shrimp before they would eat a fish

Hey reefpete, I am following along because this is what I'm doing with my 60g build.

From what I read, they will go after the shrimp and possible the goby. Not to hijack your thread, but my tank will be a Valentini puffer, dwarf lion of some sort, and a snowflake. I read these little puffers (like the fiji) can actually be good tank mates with a dwarf lion!
