Shrimp question

Currently have a 55g FOWLR but plan on eventually going reef , I have a Coral Banded Shrimp in there for about 2 weeks now and I was wondering if it would be safe add a cleaner shrimp in with it ? Any success with this pair , any horror stories . Happy to hear them all.

I have a mated pair of blue bandeds, 4 cleaners, and 6 pepermints. No problems at all. They each have their spot and stick to it.

If you are the type that feeds daily it should be fine. If you only feed 3x a week I wouldn't suggest it. The bandeds go hanibal lector if hungry and you don't feed

My coral banded didn't play well with others...not shrimp nor crab.
