1 banded shrimp?
2 percula/ocellaris clown (i personally like perculas more)
1 yellow clown goby
1 firefish
Unfortunately, Perculas and Ocellaris' will fight because they aren't from the same family.

I wouldn't put Peppermint Shrimps in with a Banded Shrimp because Bandeds have been known to kill other shrimps. I hear of some people keeping the two together, but I personally wouldn't do it.

Thanks! I'll do perculas then. How many peppermints could I do without the banded? Just one?

Nope you could do more than one. I would say about 4, maybe 1 or 2 more. Hey, that rhymes! LOL

I use reef crystals when I mix my own. As far as food, mysis and bribe shrimp is what I feed. And maybe some seaweed later on if the need calls.

I would say so, just add a one or two at a time, and if no aggression is shown, add one or two more until you get to 4-5. (Does that make sense, LOL).

+1 on this. But remember that peppermint shrimp are nocturnal and need plenty of spaces to hide. If you are looking for an active shrimp, these aren't the ones for you. I have three in my 220 gallon and only see them when I change my rockwork.

Thanks again! And I have frozen mysis and bribe (hehe) shrimp on hand at all times.
Instant ocean seems to be the preferred brand. And yes redsea that makes perfect sense
I would like to see them... Are there other active/cheap shrimp I could get?

I really like my cleaner shrimp. I think I paid 25$ for him. But prices where I live are a little high so it could be cheaper for you. The cleaner shrimp have the nice reds in them. They pick a "station" in the tank. But I love watching the fish line up to get cleaned. It's like having a little fish car wash in your tank. Lol
