... Cleaner shrimp like to be in groups of 2 or more... otherwise they can be shy. If you have the fish and your shrimp cooperate, they will make a "cleaning station", they will be visible and they will clean any fish that wishes to be cleaned. In my tank, the Tangs, Anthias, and Flame Wrasses all get cleaned.

My clowns have never been cleaned that I have seen... I believe it has something to do with their slime coat and such.

Is it important to get them at the same time like clowns? Or can I ad another?
