    Hello,
    My YWG got evicted to the sump by the 6 line so we got him a pistol shrimp. We wanted to put them back in the DT. Will this be safe with the cleaner shrimp? Thanks,
    Angie

    They will be fine together unless you have some kind of pyscho pistol shrimp. Those two shrimp occupy different areas of the tank one in the sand and one in the rocks.

    My pistol shrimp hardly comes out from the rocks, so I think it would be fine for your cleaner shrimp.
