peppermint and skunk cleaner

I just purchased another peppermint shrimp yesterday. He/she is a lot smaller then the other peppermint. Should I be concerned about them not getting along? Also, I really like the look of the skunk cleaner shrimp. Would he get along with the two peppermints? Is that too many shrimp for a 75g?

The peppermints should be fine together.
The skunk cleaner should be fine as well, just try to pick one as large as the bigger peppermint.

It`s not too many for a 75 gallon. You should be OK.

How about getting a pair of skunk cleaners? Is that too many?

I just figured if I have a pair of peppermint then if I'm going to get a cleaner then I might as well get a pair. I never see my peppermint and I was reading the cleaners stay out so that is why I wanted to get them. The peppermints did there job as for the aptasia. There was what appeared to be aptasia and now it is gone.

You could go for a fire shrimp. I think they are beautiful and can act as cleaners.

I know my blood shrimp acts like a cleaner. That is a good choice also.
