    hi Guys,

    I have upgraded to a bigger tank, tank I bought came with 2 coral shrimps. Question is, is that I currently have a fire shrimp in my current setup, can I mix the 2 shrimps together or will they fight?

    What is the size of the tank? In a big tank they will probably be fine, but not in a small tank. I've kept boxers with cleaners and fire shrimps in a 6ft without issues.

    New tank is 1.2 by 500 by 700. With about 45kg of live rock.

    Should be fine in there IMO. Fire shrimps are quite cryptic anyway, only see mine every now and then.

    I have a pair of locally caught boxers in my coral qt at the moment for the last 8 months, just waiting for my 5 year old male boxer to die from old age before adding them to DT. Oh, and for the checkerboard wrasse to go, I think it will eat any new shrimps added.
