1 or 2 scarlet cleaner shrimp for a 54g corner

Should I just get 1 scarlet cleaner for my 54g FO tank or do I get a small pair? I currently have a goby, clown and 2 damsels. Will possibly get a small flame or regal tang in the next few months. They say they do better and are less shy when in pairs. Just looking for your guys opinions,
Thanks

I know they are quite pricey for a shrimp but imo is opt for a group of 3..I've always found that groups of 3 are better then just pairs. I always stick to odd numbers when making groups of just about anything

Do I really need that many for my size tank? I already have some snails and crabs for cleanup.

You don't NEED any just I find that with most creatures that like groups you get the best interaction with 3 or more but if you only want one then that's fine

The cleaner shrimp don't really clean anything but fish. I have one in my 54 corner and he is quite active and not shy. He's big now about 3". I added another smaller one the other day, but I think my emerald crab stalked it and killed it.
