Sexy shrimp

I currently have 1 cleaner shrimp and 1 peppermint shrimp.

Would I be able to add some sexy shrimp to my 30g fowlr??

How big is the cleaner?

Mine got territorial when I put in a peppermint, nearly killed him, and if I hadn't moved him he would have been a goner.

The cleaner is an inch, maybe an inch and a quarter.

He is the boss between him and my peppermint.

That's what I'm worried about. With the sexy's being smaller, like less than an inch that he will attack them.

Yeah, you would definitely be taking a chance on it, I think mine was about that size when he attacked the peppermint.
You never know, the cleaner could completely ignore the sexies, if you get them watch like a hawk for a while.

Well I'll be ****ed... from what I've seen peps and cleaners behave very similarly. Didn't know they were more territorial/aggressive.

There is no telling, a lot has to do with the size of the tank.
