No they don't, a shrimp is pretty much a shrimp. They have very little impact on bio load and either would be fine in a 10

I'm not referring to bioload. Cleaner shrimp have a tendency to jump on any fish within a foot of their area. Fish need territory.

I'm not sure I understand your argument for peppermints over a skunk cleaner. I had a skunk in my 10 and my fish didn't care about him. Same goes for my fish in my 20. Heck if he tried to clean them they just swam away fairly quickly and didn't really care.

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.

I think im going to go with the skunk shrimp not only for their apperance but they seem to be very interesting and i dont think there would be a problem with a clownfish and a firefish since they are both very peacefull and not much to worry about territory since the firefish is usually shy i think its okay with any of the shrimp and can i add another fish to the tank since it is modified its not 10'gallons im using but the actual 14 with the exception of the rock volume
