Is it ok to put more than one shrimp in your aquarium. I was thinking about adding another one to my aquarium. Should it be the same kind or can it be different??

22lbs LR
4 Damsels
2 tomato clowns
2 starfishCleaner shrimp
crabs and snails

ortiepends how many litres your tank is, if they r aggressive shrimp u need large territorys or else fights will break out but this is depending on the breed...i hear coral banded r agressive but i never had trouble with it on other fish, it did its own thing, but i think cleaner shrimp r more social, mike knows alot wait till/if he reads this n mite shed some light on the type of shrimp u want but litres or gallons would help

If thats it you will be fine. I used to have two and all they did was hang out under the same rock all day.
