Prismaco,

I have three cleaner shrimp and a few pepermint. In my opinion go with only 1 cleaner shrimp and two pepermints. My cleaners have become predatory and hunt down anything small like copepods and one even ate one of my rock lobster that cohabitate with my christmas tree worm rock. Snatched him right out of his hole in the rock and ate him whole right in front of me. I was in shock and horror then I got mad. We almost had shrimp on the barbie that day. The pepermint shrimp are for the most part the calmest shrimp. One word of caution make sure you get true pepermint shrimp. Some pet stores and online vendors sell camelback shrimp as pepermints and you definitely don't want them in your tank.

Hey Paul: I'll be happy to give you the latest sensation in reef cleaners - the Scarlet Peppermint Hermit Shrimp (see http://www.thereeftank.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=19077) as soon as the first litter shows up. :D
