    Would you say the risk is low, as opposed to moderate and high?

    i would say it is pretty low since cleaner shrimp help the fish out by cleaning them off

    I'd say low. Moderate to high that they'd attack other fish, but shrimp is unlikely.

    My six line doesn't bother my shrimp but he's a brute to the other fish.

    I say no. They will bother other fish around their size though.
