red blood shrimp and cleaner shrimp

Hi I was thinking of adding 1 red blood and 1 cleaner shrimp to my tank and was wondering would these two shrimp get along? I was also thinking of a peppermint shrimp too?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I have a fire shrimp and a peppermint shrimp and they are fine. I acclimated them together and they were fine together there too. Swam together (or crawled) and went their separates ways and back again.

When I first put them in the tank they were like brothers together. That was this past Saturday. Today, they go where they want.

I read somewhere that Fire Shrimp are also...cleaner shrimp too.

So I say yes.......so far
