I have at least 3 kinds of shrimp. My favorite has to be my bumble bee shrimp. Here it is hitching a ride on my Caledonian sand sifting cuke

Decided to choose shrimp over a blue jaw trigger. I kinda miss him now though.

So currently have the following in my 150 gallon:

Tiger pistol shrimp
Blood/fire shrimp
Cleaner shrimp x 2
Gold/yellow coral banded shrimp

My pico tank with 12 ultra rock anemones has:

Sexy shrimp x 4
Peterson's shrimp

I would love a harliquin shrimp they are beautiful imo, but after finding out they primarily feed on starfish I felt like it wasn't responsible of me to get one; I have no starfish for it to feed on. I wasn't sure if I could get away with frozen but seemed like a bad idea..
Good move some idiots get on and when the starfish are all gone they buy chocolate chip starfish and let the shrimp slowly eat it. Its sad. We have some idiots in the hobby

My tank came with 2. A harlequin, and a coral banded. I love to watch the harlequin come to the front of the glass when it’s feeding time. And the coral band, well it just freaks me out. It shed the first night I got the tank, and I had to have a friend pull out the remaining parts. I have heard it will eat all the other shrimp if I add more, or is it if I just add another coral banded?‍♂️

I've got a large skunk cleaner and a tiny coral banded shrimp in my main tank. I had a large coral banded, but my niger trigger tore it's arms off and ate it. The tiny coral banded gets left alone, and the skunk probably cleans the Niger trigger more than any other fish.

I've got a 20G long that's packed with rock, that was originally just t cycle the rock, but it turned into a shrimp tank where I've got a half dozen peppermints and a pair of blood shrimp that get along well enough that I hope they breed.
