My angelfish & shrimp

Ok so I got a bicolor angelfish and he is always Swimming up to my shrimp and letting the shrimp antennas touch him, he seems to enjoy it, but while he does it he shakes and turns to his sides, why does this happen? Why does he always do it?

He is trying to get the shrimp to clean him. Is it a cleaner shrimp?? They will go ip to almost any shrimp and try to get cleaned. Is the anhel sick or is it in good health??

They do that. My fish at times keep my cleaner shrimp busy. My angel did what urs is doing but to my wrasse all the time. My wrasse used to pick stuff off my angel. Its normal. I would not worry about it. If the angel is eating and in good health he is probably just looking for the shrimp to clean him
