Skunks are more social. Fire shrimp tend to hide a lot.

Cleaners are out/active. Red fire shrimp are reclusive/come out usually for food.

I have 2 skunks and a fire. The skunks produce fry every other week and feed my coral and fish. It is a nice plus to multiple shrimp.

2 days? Nothing is going to act normal after 2 days. Most of these things are plucked right from the ocean.
