will Cleaner Shrimp and Fire Shrimp get along?

One more question peeps,

I used to have a peppermint shrimp in my tank but I believe it got killed by my inhabitants, couldn't find the culprit for that, however, I would really like to have a Fire Shrimp/Blood Shrimp in my tank, will it get along with Cleaner Shrimp? I don't want to get things that couldn't get along.

Any input will be great.

They are both cleaning shrimp. I had a mixture of them in my tank with no issues. On the perppermint shrimp, I can't seem to keep them alive in my tank, but other shrimp do great.

My Cleaner shrimp and Fire Shrimp get along great, they "Hang" out together under a rock. Never could figure out why shrimp like to hang upside down....

I never could keep pepermint shrimp alive, they always die. I never had a problem with Fire shrimp, cleaner shrimp, or camel shrimp (not reef safe)

I was wondering the same thing. With a skunk and blood shrimp could I get another type of shrimp as well?
