You'll have to wait for one of the brains here to chime in on the combatibility of the sally lightfoot crab and skunk (cleaner) shrimp. My shrimp got along great with my watchman goby.
It absolutely creeps my son out when the shrimp crawls on him but my daughter thinks it's a hoot! Once you see the personalities of the shrimps it doesn't bother you as much as you might think. Like I said before, it's really neat to watch them clean the various fish too.
My shrimp waits for the fish to swim just close enough and then he launches himself at them. I've seen him darn near ride my yellow tang for half of the length of my tank. Also, when a fish isn't quite close enough to him he'll start rocking back and forth to "lure" them in (hence the name "Elvis" for my shrimp).
Gosh, can you tell I really like this guy?
