Cleaner and skunk are the same. Some call it skunk because of the white stripe on its back

Cleaner shrimp are better IMO. Mine is always trying to get "business" and clean fish, but the fish are not really used to him. When I do water changes or put my hand in the tank he'll hop on my hand and try to clean it . Fire shrimp prefer low-lighted areas, so they hide a lot aka you might not see him a lot. I doubt any of your fish would eat a sexy shrimp , although your six line wrasse could be a suspect if you did get one. I just added a tiny pistol shrimp 2 days ago and my problem is I don't think I'll ever find him since he's so small!

There's also this lady giving a 14g nanocube cube for 10$ cause the light don't work. I was thinking about getting it ditching the hood and putting an led over top.

But idk of any led lights that hang over the top of the tank that are cheap.

Peppermint are cheap yes. I am currently looking for a light for my new rimless 14 gallon cube. Just cleaned it all out today with bleach and its drying in the garage. Tried the sump and seem to work good. Going to upgrade the return pump though. Not enough flow for me.
