I am not particularly keen on the Coral Banded Shrimp (I have one). He looks interesting with his defensive claws, but personality-wise, I would call them crotchity since they aren't too happy when any critter comes in contact with their personal space and I have seen them try to pinch a fish or two. The fire shrimp, another cleaner-shripm type, is a nice colorful addition.

I do like my brittle star and it is good in cleaning up food that reaches the bottom of the tank. I was told that they are pretty nocturnal, but frankly, if there is food around, they become active.

If you don't mind gravel being moved around (and it is supposed to be healthy for your tank), I have enjoyed my diamond watchman. He has carved out his home beneath my structures and shares it quite peacefully with my two scissor gobies. Even when he is upset or threatened, he is never attacking a fish...he just opens up his mouth very wide to give the impression he is a bigger fish than he really is.
