Sexy and cleaner shrimp

I`m currently stocking my 25 and I am trying to find how many bottom feeders I need. Mt tank is a 25 gallon and the demisions are 24" x 12" x 20".
Now I`m interested in striped cleaner shrimp, blood red shrimp, sexy shrimp, pom pom crab, and the Porcelain Crab. My tank is going to be home to serval SPS and LPS. Any info or suggestions would be great, thanks.

I would only add one cleaner shrimp species. Some people report two different cleaner shrimp species will be aggressive to each other

I think sexy shrimp are like clownfish and live around anemones so they probably aren't cleaners.

That was what I was thinking, do you think a blood red shrimp would bother them?

I doubt it. If the blood red and sexy shrimp stay in their own territory they should be fine but I'd still be cautious in case your shrimp behave differently.

Alright, thanks. I'm going to be extra careful with all invertebrates I add because of that. Do you if I had a porcelain crab would over stock the tank. I'm. Not getting any hermits becuse of some horror stories I read.

Cool, if I got a pistol shrimp instead of a porcelain crab would it cause trouble with the BR shrimp?

Sorry if I'm playing 20 questions.

The pistol shrimp is a burrower so I don't see a problem unless you have a strange BR shrimp.
