I've had these 2 together in a 135 for about 6 weeks and they are fine. They stay on opposite ends of the tank manning their respective cleaning stations.

I have a pair of both. They get along well and are very active - fun to watch.

Thanks for the input ladies. You both have large tanks that give them their own territory. I only have a 25G. tall Eclipse show tank. Do you think they will still have enough room?--------Thanks again-----Anthony

not intending to hijack the thread here.. but on a side note for those that have fireshrimp to they believe they clean just as well as skunks? I prefer the look of the fire shrimp but don't want to lose out on the benefits of a skunk...

I had 1 pair of each fire and skunk... The fire tended to stay to their prespictive station only to venture out when food is present but the skunks once in a while will try to push them around... only when food is present again.. but they boded pretty well together..
