just need a little reassurance

iv been running my 55 gal reef tank for just a little over a year now.. only had a few fish die (due to a tube anemone i got last month,but am bringing back to the lfs) but overall i think im doing good. i have 3 shrimp in the tank and they are doing very well, with that said.... shrimp are the most delicate rite???? so if they are growing,multing,and looking good, then i must be doing a good job right????? thank you for your time.

Very delicate! Also they will sting and kill other fish/corals as you have already found out. Only a very established tank of about 7 months should hold a nem and when they die they release toxins and can kill everything if it isnt removed soon enough...

Carpets eat fish. Be wary
