Either would be fine.

tank size doesn't usually have much effect on inverts. they are pretty clean creatures.

i'd get one of each shrimp, they all serve a different porpous. cleaner shrimp tend to be good for ich control while pepperments are good for controlling Aiptasia. they both are good for cleaning up left over food and any other decaying matter including wastes
