Compatible shrimp


New member
I have 46 gallon, lots of soft corals, right now just a damsel, 2 clowns, 2 Emerald Crabs, 1 coral banded plus clean up crew.

My question I want to get a Firecracker shrimp as well, but was concerned that the coral banded and Firecracker might be aggressive towards each other? The LFS guy says probably not, some on line things I've read say yes, some say no its fine.

What is you experience in putting a firecracker in?

Coral Banded is spectacular, but may attack fish. I don't specifically know about the shrimp combo, but I wouldn't trust it not to happen, given the CB's rep and the behavior of shrimp in general.
