How many shrimp is too many?

Got a 75g fish and reef tank and I just love the various shrimp. Still populating with fish right now and have the following: yellow tang, foxface rabbit, 3 percs, 2 blue green chromis, and a yellow watchman goby. Plan to do another (larger purplel) tang, a couple of blennies, and maybe a pair of 2 spot gobies to sift sand.

Got these shrimp now: pistol shrimp (for the watchman) that tunnels, 4 peppermint, 5 cleaner (3 large, 2 small), and 3 scarlets. Snails, hermit crabs, and 3 green mythrax. A couple of leathers, a fox, & a pumping xenia for coral.

Is there a limit for shrimp? I'd like to consider more cleaners and peppermints. Maybe even a small yellow coral banded.

Any thoughts?
