I don't see anything in your list of inhabitants that would care rather there were shrimp in your tank or not. I would add some.

You don't think they will want to eat them? I had some very small (1-2cm) scavenger shrimp in there and they got chomped.

Unless I'm missing something, no. I see a dwarf angel, two clowns, a damsel and a blenny. None of which will bother cleaners or peppermint shrimp.

yeah.. i might give them a go. Over here cleaner shrimp are VERY expensive. They are up to $200 for a pair. I will have to see if I can find other types of shrimp less expensive.

As far as I know, cleaner shrimp are not yet been successfully captive bred like the peppermint shrimp so they are more expensive.

That's a bummer. They are very nice to look at.

Yeah we usually pay through the nose for marine stuff here.

2x96w PC lights, 36" fixture + lights, the best I can find is $350AU.

Yellow Tang.. $180, but I can find them for $100 elsewhere but they are much smaller.

Live rock is $15 per KG, maybe $12 but far less quality. And those don't have that much living in them at all, just algae and thats about it.
