    Cleaner shrimp were one of the first inverts available to the hobbyist in the 70s right behind arrow crabs. I have always had them in my tank and never had any problems with them. This pair
    (Circa 1974) spawned in my 40 gallon tank for about 7 years. I had the female and later added a juvenile male. As soon as he hit the water she was on him and it was love at first sight. But he was to young to mate so she had to date him first for a few months. But they remained inseparable until the end.

    I have all 3 in my 120 liter tank and they are fantastic. Somtimes there are a few “school yard scuffles” for territory but otherwise they get on well together each with their own character. Love mine.

    Sounds like a neat lineup, Clint! Thanks for sharing!

    I love my Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp. He’s the center of attention in my 44 gal corner tank. Wish I knew how to post a pic. He’s beautiful.
    I’m afraid he will jump off I fill my water to the rim. Anybody ever experienced that?
