    Are they worth getting? Theyre kind of expensive as far as shrimp are concerned...

    IMO, no they are not worth it. They generally care nothing about being out in the open. The skunk cleaners are far more active just not nearly as pretty.

    Just be forewarned about Skunks, I had one go full Manson on my bubble coral about 6 months ago. They are VERBOTEN in my reef tanks now. Coral bandeds and peppermints only. M still has a pair in her tank and they seem to be behaving. Blood Reds are very secretive, I had 4 in my 240 and I could count on one hand the number of times I saw them.
