I am wondering, do different kinds of shrimps usually get along or are they agressive towards each other? Thanks.:11:

I think most small shrimp can be kept with other small shrimp. However, I would not trust big ghost shrimp not to eat baby cherries.

Would a sexy anemone shrimp and a scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp get along well?

Is this freshwater or saltwater?

This conversation is about saltwater shrimp The red severum.

man if you want a really cool saltwater invert go with a mantis shrimp they are very interesting creatures and man can they tear some stuff up some species can borrow through solid rock just by smacking it

but if you go this route be careful when you do tank maintenance because some of the larger species can break fingers if you are struck and on the opposite end of the spectrum a smaller species can slice your finger open or if they are only a baby they can give you a really good wake up
