Shrimp For My Tank

I am thinking of some more invertebrates to keep in my ten gallon FOWLR. I would like to get a couple more shrimp. Inside, I already have a firefish, two scarlet skunk shrimp, two turbo snails, and a hermit crab. I'm also going to add a clown goby sometime next month.

I was thinking of adding a couple of peppermint shrimp, as this was my original plan. What shrimp would you recommend? I just want something easy to care for that I can feed the same food as my fish and skunk shrimp. Thanks!

New life spectrum pellets for everyone, and frozen brine and mysis shrimp for the fish.

I don't see why not! They just don't get along with each other

Okay so I'll only get one then. And they won't hurt any of my other animals, right?

It will help, taking parasites off, it does almost everything a cleaner shrimp does another common name for the fire shrimp is scarlet cleaner shrimp! I'll probably get one of these in my 75 soon!
