I have 2 skunk cleaner shrimps and they can care less about cleaning any of my fish and vise versa. Instead they wait patiently, rocking back and forth, perched under a rock ledge at the spot where food falls from the sky. Then it's an all out free for all food frenzy of fish and shrimp. Quite amazing to see.

Yeah I see your in PA as well jamal-188. If you are overhere in the civilized half (Pittsburgh) yeah they are $52 at Seahorse out in Allison Park and the only other place I would buy livestock from is Elemers down in Monroeville but That is about 1.5 hours away from me.. The reason i really can't order online is I have no one at home nor do I have any neighbors so I am afraid that the UPS guy would just put them outside my door like he always does and I would come home to fishcycles... But thank you very much for the tips..I am hoping that eventually the fish loosens up a bit.. he's only been in there for 48hours so I would imagine that he is still kinda acclimating to the new tank and eventully he will let the shrimp clean him due to him being ok with it or exhaustion due to running from the shrimp forever

the coral banded shrimp will only clean the bottom of the tank, not the fish. I have a coral banded and it seems to get along with my cleaner. By get along I mean there both alive at the same time, one controls one side of the tank and the other gets the other side.
