Squat anemone or Sexy shrimp

Is there a difference between these two shrimp or are they the same shrimp known by those two names...squat anemone and sexy...???

Anyway...I have a 5 gal hex with a 12 watt 50/50 light, power filter, and mini powerhead...Right now it has a Feather duster, a yellow fanworm and a serpent star...I was wondering if I could add a few of these shrimp in with the rest of these inverts...It will be a inevrt only tank and These shrimp only grow to about an inch in length

any suggestions are welcome...thx

Yes they are the same shrimp. I have 2 that chill on my frogspawns all day. Girls really dig them too. I would be a little concerned about keeping your water quality high in a small tank becuase these shrimp are very sensitive to salinity changes IMO. It can be done but just stay on top of things.
