Blood Red Fire Shrimp vs. Scarlet Skunk Shrimp

I am considering either getting a fire shrimp or a skunk shrimp for my 15 gallon reef tank and am having trouble choosing which one I should get. I would like to what what some of you think about these shrimps and which one you would choose.

I personally like my fire shrimp. He's absolutely beautiful. But also kind of shy - I really only see him out during feeding time, otherwise he just hangs out in an overhang. The skunk is definitely more active if that's what you're looking for. I found the one I had annoying though - a little hyperactive for my tastes. He was always scampering all over the coral and stealing food from everyone.
