I apologize for the delay in my response, life can get quite hectic sometimes. I finally got a chance to talk to my husband about this, and he also said the compatibility of any 2 different shrimp species is going to be largely dependent on the amount of rock in the tank. The cleaner shrimp/fire shrimp would be a 50/50 shot. He also said that provided there is enough rock, other combinations that may work are cleaner shrimp with peppermint shrimp, or the smaller species of coral banded shrimp (yellow and purple only because they stay small) would mix ok with peppermint, cleaner, or fire shrimp.
We both suggest that whatever combination you attempt, please keep a close eye on them during the first month or so. Any signs of aggression, add more rock, rearrange the rock already in there, and seperate them if needed.
Best of luck to you, let us know how it goes or if you need any further help.
