I have a Fire Shrimp, 2 Cleaners, and an Emerald. Of course there are also the corals, snails and hermits. Oh, I also have a Peppermint Shrimp. Here are some pictures of some of my inverts!

very nice tank shot, looks so pleasing. I was actually thinking of getting one fancy hermit crab just because it'd be too expensive to get a bunch

Get a pom pom crab. They are awesome unless you have a 50+ gallon tank, then youll never see them. Teddy bear crabs are awesome too, but its possible they will mess with your anemones. You could also get yourself a small cuttlefish, some Lfs sell them and they are extraordinarily interesting

I see my pom pom about once a month and at night only. Hope you have a nice pistol... they do kill other shrimp and small fish if given the opportunity.

I love my 2 cleaner shrimp. More like puppies than anything. I also have 2 deer cowries, and a tiger cowrie. It's cool looking with the red light and seeing a boulder moving around. But, my favorite is my staghorn hermit(claw kong), he's the only hermit I can hold in my hand and feed by hand. Took a lot of months and being pinched several times to get him like that, but it's super neat.

Where are the mantis shrimp folks at in this thread.
