Safe Shrimp

Hey everyone, I am planning on ordering 3 Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis) for my reef tank. Will these guys be safe with the typically diverse reef system? I want a colorful shrimp that will not eat my clam, corals, etc.

I've had Blood Cleaner Shrimp eat Zoos & Protopalythoa but nothing else. I've never had Scarlet Cleaners bother anything except by walking across them.
