shrimp compatibility


I have 2 blood shrimps (lysmata debelius) in my tank. One is fairly large, they molt regularly, they're happy and all.

I was planning to add another shrimp or maybe a couple. I'm interested in a lymsata amoboinensis or a wurdemanni. Are these compatible? Or the bigger blood shrimp is going to tear them apart?

Tank is a 55g FOWLR.

Blood shrimp are faily passive and wont be the agressors.

The cleaner shrimp wont stay smaller for long. I have a pair of Blood or Fire shrimp as some call them in my 20 with a half dozen peppermints and thy have not had a problem living in the same enviorment.
