Quick question

I'm on my way to get a peppermint shrimp and cleaner. Could I get 2 peppermint shrimp? Or do they do best alone? I have a 12 gallon nano reef

You can get both they shouldn't bother each other unless you don't have any fish in the tank other than them

My old pistol hated my other shrimp. He was supposed to be friendly but im convinced he killed them both.

If the goby doesn't bother the shrimp then go ahead and get it
