Cleaners are always welcome additions they will pick at the ditrus , and excess foods ... and clean the fish if they so allow

Fire shrimp are also great cleaners and have beautiful colors. I like my pistol shrimp, but don't plan on seeing them much, as they tend to be somewhat blind and work well with a shrimp goby. The pistol keeps the cave cleansed out and will go out on "expeditions" with the goby, usually keeping an attenae on the goby for directions.

I agree with Scott. I love my fire/blood shrimp as well. Brilliant coloration. They are more expensive then the skunk cleaner however. How about one of each?

cool, I just bought a scarlet this evening, I really like the blood shrimp. I am actually thinking of buying some fish from Fosters and Smith online.
