Does anyone have any exp with these fish?

I have a 24g aquapod and purchased a strawberry pseudochromis a few days ago, I also had my lfs store order me 3 sexy shrimp.

Now I read that the fish can attack and eat ornamental shrimp? Would this include sexy shrimp? Does anyone have any exp with this issue?

Now what do I do, I really want the shrimp... but this is a great fish too!

TIA
Linn

How big is the fish? The sexy shrimp I have seen for sale around here (Oceans Reef) are very small. If it is a small pseudo you may be alright but your taking a chance imo, Carrie

he's about 2 inches. I dont want to take a chance, I have a cleaner shrimp and was really excited about the sexy shrimp.

The cleaner shrimp willl be fine although pseudochromis rarely get parasites for some reason they seem to be pretty durable fish, they do jump though so be careful. I just wish you could mix them cause I want a vampie pseudo soooo bad but I have a neon dotty and they wouldnt do good I am afraid.
