It's hit or miss with a CBS. Chances are, at least at some point, the CBS will end up lunching on the other shrimp. My suggestion, if you want to keep a CBS with other types of shrimp, is to trade it in for a Golden CBS, then add a Cleaner shrimp comparably sized. The Golden CBS are considerably smaller when fully grown, than their red kin. Their smaller size helps ensure that other shrimps are able to protect themselves in the CBS's presence.
