Everyone that comes to my house always compliments how cool the $19.99 cleaner shrimp is and don't say much about my $300 worth of coral except when they look at my torch coral and say that anemone is cool LOL
I get the same thing with my torch and toadstool. The people who have no clue about coral seem to always like the coral that move with the current. But thinking back, torch, toadstool and hammer were some of my first corals. Now I like the other more colorful (although maybe smaller) stuff better.
As far as inverts I have a few scarlet hermits that seem to leave my Turbo, Astrea, nassarius and margaritas alone. I used to have about 6-ceriths which all died, but I never saw a scarlet hermit crab messing with them.
