shrimp stocking ?

Would 3 shrimp, 2 cleaners and 1 blood, be too much for a 37gal FOWLR. I have heard that the cleaners are social and do better when there is more than 1 of them in a tank, and the blood shrimp just looks cool.

Current stocking levels are
1 yellowtailDamsel
1 pseudochromis

next 3 months
1 true clown
1 ??
done...

I am not sure what the bioload is for shrimp.

Tank may eventualy become a small reef.

Thanks

that should be fine in your tank.. Shrimp don't add to the bioload and they actually are great scavengers for fish waste and leftover food. Make sure if you get them that you drip acclimate them as they are very sensitive to water changes.

Great thanks.

one more thing, can I get the 2 cleaners at the same time or should I stagger them.

Thanks again.

I LOVE THIS SITE....

You could mix things up a bit more and do a cleaner, blood, peppermint combo. Currently I have 1 cleaner, 1 tiger pistol shrimp, and 1 peppermint. Pistol shrimp rocks at moving sand around. My cleaner is a crazy, I watched him jump up on a powerhead today and play with the suction on the intake. Good luck!

I think you can add both at the same time.
