I'm thinking on adding a cleaner shrimp, fire shrimp or a coral banded.

I'm leaning towards the cleaner, I really liked the ones I had in my 125g til they were killed off. :-(

I don't know of any shrimp that sift sand. Theones i mentioned will eat regular flake food and other stuff thats on the sandbed. They are scavengers.
