Do it! Blood Shrimp are Cleaner shrimp, so they pick parasites off of fish. I have a Blood Shrimp, and I like him. I think that a Skunk Cleaner Shrimp is also a good choice, as they are less shy and tend to hang out in plain view all day. Peppermints are more nocturnal, so you might only see them at night, or at feedings...

Blood Shrimp, although one of cleaner, but very lazy at that. They are found deeper end thus seemed to hide most time unlike skunk cleaner shrimp which is very active thru out the day. Definitely more action from skunk. I usually kept few of both in any reef set ups. Boold for their striking red color and skunk for their activeness.

I think sknuks are $5-10 cheaper. Aroung here skunk goes for $15-20 and blood goes for $25-30.

I am pretty sure the skunk cleaners here are around 20$, but the blood shrimps are closer 40-50$
how many of each do you figure can go in a 65 gallon ?
