Multiple Shrimp?

Hey All,

I need some advice on whether or not I can keep different kinds of shrimps together? I have a 94l tank and was thinking along the lines of a cleaner shrimp and maybe one other type of shrimp. Any advice? Many thanks in advance.

Daniel

Most shrimp are compatible together with coral bandeds being the main concern of killing another shrimp

So as long as I stay away from coral banded shrimp I should be fine?

I have heard mixed opinions on pistol shrimp, not sure if I will put one in with my other shrimp or not.

Cleaner shrimp, peppermint do a great job scavenging.blood shrimps look awesome but hide a lot not as efficient as cleaners tho.just traded in two coral banded pair for a cleaner and water. They were just getting to aggressive and I like my watchman to much!
