Too many shrimp?

My buddy has 2 cleaner shrimp in his 75g, he would like to have a blood red fire shrimp as well. In this size tank, will there be any problems. I read the thread another person put up and it was only for 1 each. I have 2 cleaners and 1 fire shrimp now in my 180 and do not have any problems. Just wondering if the smaller size tank would cause any problems?

There is always a chance for aggression when you stagger their introduction. I had a cleaner and a couple pepps in a 90. They weren't friendly, but they didn't kill each other. It quickly became established that the cleaner had free roam but the pepps had to stay in a certain portion of the rockwork.

Better to stay on the safe side then? I'll tell him to wait until one of the cleaners passes. Thanks for the help.

I don't have lots of experience with multiple shrimp, thats just my one story. Maybe someone else will know more specifically.
