chocolate chip sea star and shrimp

Could I add maybe a scarlet cleaner shrimp or a blood red fire shrimp in my tank? I currently have a longnose bf, foxface, two clowns, and a cc. Some people have told me the cc will eat the shrimp but I don't see how he could catch a shrimp, he's not that fast.

CC stars will attack, corner, or ambush (or all three) most, if not all hermits, snail, shrimp, crabs, and corals. They are not reef safe at all, which usually includes things in a CUC.

He may not look fast, but it is like a FW lobster; hide and ambush. I have seen CC stars even go after small fish like Chromis's, and almost succeded untill someone got them out of there.
