Sexy shrimp are kinda small and all bets are off.

Carey, did your shrimp TOTALLY dissapear? Found no pieces anywhere? Between those three in your tank, I'm thinking a rouge pistol. But I've had up to 2 pistols in a tank and 5 cleaners and never had an issue.
In my 75 i had a cleaner shrimp and at the time i had a sleeper goby (goldenhead) about 4" . From one day to another my shrimp completely disappeared , I also thought it could have been the goby till this day it's still a mystery!
