Livestock help?

So my purple pseudochromis died recently from jumping out of the fish tank. I'm sad that I lost a fish like that but happy I can finally add new livestock. Can I add a cleaner shrimp if I have a coral banded shrimp. Also before my pseudochromis my two clownfish killed my royal gramma and bangai cardinal. An I able to add another fish?

I think it all depends on the animal. They all have personalities like us. I have a 30 gal with cbs and cleaner shrimp. My coral band shrimp and cleaner has been in the same tank for 5 months now. I believe i got a more relax cbs because he is non aggressive. Hes a good 4 inches from front to back but i have heard they become more hostile but havent seen it. I feed him once a week to keep his appetite down, so he wont go hunting.

I have a coral banded shrimp that tries to attack whatever it comes across. Mine is also pretty big and it's in a 300 gallon tank. I would suggest against it.
