Multiple Shrimp

Is it okay to house multiple cleaner shrimp and/or fire shrimp in the same tank? Can they only be in pairs?

For example, could I have more than two Fire Shrimp in a 55g? Thanks!

[CENTER]Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)

I see no reason why you couldn't do more than just 2 fire shrimp. I personally have 2 skunk cleaners and 1 fire shrimp in my 29 gallon. The fire shrimp seems a bit more aggressive than my skunks. About every other week my skunk cleaners hatch a brood of eggs each and give me some good live coral food. It is an added benefit of a pair of shrimp.
