I would think you would be ok with both in a tank that size. On both parts of your question.

Are Coral banded shrimp ok with other kinds? I was hoping on a coral banded and two skunk cleaners in my 45 gallon. TIA!

CB's can be sometimes aggressive. I wouldn't say no, but would proceed with caution.

Let them live happily forever..

They should be fine together. As far as the CB question, they can be aggressive, however, usually to their own kind. You wouldn't want to add more than one FME in a 75... esp in a 45..

Cheers,

Should be fine. I have 2 skunck cleaners, three peppermints, one fire/blood and one coral banded shrimp in my 72 with no trouble.

Too true, they always keep them separate at my lfs and will even try to attack each other through the glass!

I keep a cleaner, 2 peppermints, and one very large 3” coral banded shrimp and they all get along swimmingly All are great scavengers but I would target feed them once a week for optimal health . I feed mine small pieces of raw shrimp once a week after soaking in Kent Marine Zoe & Selcon .
