    Probably, neither are known to be aggressive towards other shrimp. I have both in my tank.

    I have heard from some folks that the Cleaner Shrimp will take out Peppermints in small tanks.

    i have 3 peppermints and a large skunk cleaner in my 45gal and never had a prob. as long as you have lots of cliffs and caves for them to hang out on you shuld be fine imo.
