Will my skunk cleaner shrimp clean my fish?

Hi, I have a blue tang that got into some snail goo. She is covered in this white/clear gel stuff. I bought a skunk cleaner shrimp about 2 days ago. Will he clean my tang? or has he not been in the tank long enough. I also have a peppermint shrimp that she will back up too but that shrimp doesn't seem to know what to do.
Is this ok that she has snail goo on her?

Not sure that the shrimp, or anything else, likes the goo . My skunk cleans all my fish and it's very cool to watch. Cleans my arm too, when I'm in there. I think they like the dead cells and micro parasites off of the fish.

As for "goo" - don't think they're into that.
