Question Blood shrimp questions...

So I just bought a Skunk Cleaner Shrimp and he is doing great. Kind of smaller than I wanted it but All Fish Emporium didnt have any larger today. He is very active and nice addition to my 20 gallon. I was wondering though:
1-Would a Blood Shrimp do fine with my new Cleaner shrimp? I've been dying to get one of those as well.

2-Would a Blood shrimp do ok with a Green Emerald Crab? I hear a lot of people have them together with no problems but I just wanted to ask.

Any answers or suggestions are welcome.

I thought the blood shrimp would fight the cleaners? Territory thing? That was my thinking, I want a couple but was waiting until my 2 cleaners, well you know.

i've always kept both together, and they never bothered each other, however, like mike said, the red fire shrimp are very shy. i think they are a waste of money for the amount of time you see them.

In a larger tank, they are not as shy in groups. Always kept 3 and they were out and about all the time. One even cleaned my hand if it got close.
