How many shrimps are too many?

72 gallon bowfront with one cleaner shrimp and one fire shrimp. Can I put in a couple of peppermint shrimp(s)?

On another note....tomorrow is new skimmer day...new squamosa clam day....and multiple new coral day. WhooHoo!! Oh yeah, you'll all be bored to tears when I'm finally done posting!!

I did 3 of each in my 72. They tend to come out more when in groups. I'd at least consider 2 of each - of all 3. They can be hostile to each other, but mine did fine. I even had a CBS in the mix. Your mileage may vary.

You should be just fine adding the peppermints to your tank. I had 2 skunks and 3 peps in my 72 with no problems they are pretty easy going shrimp.
