    Adding Cleaner Shrimp With Peppermint Shrimp

    So I added one cleaner shrimp to my 75 gallon. I already have 2 peppermint shrimp, and so far I haven't seen much of an issue. One of the peppermint shrimp will occasionally run the little guy out of his area, but he then stops and retreats back. I'm thinking about adding one more cleaner in to make a pair. Is it too late to do this now?

    I agree it shouldn't madder both shrimps can tolerate other species of shrimp in the same tank.

    There is no elevator to success in marine tanks. You have to take the stairs.
