In not trying to start anything. Just from personal experience I'd do a skunk as I had no trouble with one in a 10. I've had peppermints and they're boring comparatively.

Again, I'm not necessarily disagreeing. I only see it as an issue because it seemed as though he wanted to keep as many fish as possible. When swimming away, the fish wind up in other fishes territory.
I just see peppermint shrimp as an alternative due to their smaller size and lack of interaction with the fish.
That being said I like cleaner shrimp better as well.
Edit: I keep dart frogs as well.
