6 line wrass and cleaner shrimp?

IF I got a six line wrasse, could I also get cleaner shrimp and possiably a coral banded shrimp for clean up? if not...then the six line is out!

Dunno about the six line, but I would not get a CBS and Cleaner together. Atleast in my experience, the CBS will become very agressive towards the other. Some people can keep them together, some cannot.

Cleaner wrasses tend to starve, CBS will be agressive to other shrimp. I would go with the cleaner shrimp and 6 line wrasse. If you want, the fire shrimp are very colorful and will clean also (mine never did, I was new and overfed, so he got lazy).
Check this out, from etropicals.com:

I like the colors and this will be my next cleaner shrimp.

rocka I like that shrimp..
so it would be OK if I got a six line wrasse and a cleaner? cause my dad REALLY likes the six line, and I had to BEGGGGGGGG him to let me do the SW, so I want a fish that will make him happy...

I think you should be good with the 6 line and cleaner shrimp.

Cool, I really would like to see the shrimp, other than on the etropicals page.
