I have a peppermint shrimp and a fire shrimp. They have been in the same cave a few times, and no problems. They are both doing great. I acclimated them in the same bowl too, so they were in tight quarters there. They were also in the same bag when I brought them from LFS.

I have 75 gallon and just got done looking in all the nooks and crannies. They are doing peachy. The peppermint is hard to find sometimes though. One think about it is that if I can't see his body and my light hits him just right, his eyes glow like a red and stand out big time and then I know yep there he is

Hope that helps.
