I am consolidating a few tanks & I have 3 cleaner shrimp I need to put into other tanks. One of the other tanks I have running has a large coral banded shrimp in it (105g tank). Is it safe to put one of my scarlet skunk cleaner shrimp in with him?

Did you combine all those shrimp and was everything cool?

I was just considering adding a coral banded and was concerned for my cleaner.

BTW, a juvi bluering angel got a fuzzy patch on its side that disappeared less than a week after adding the cleaner shrimp. Could be coincidence but I doubt it. I never saw the shrimp clean but I rarely see the shrimp. ):
