Well you realise harlequin shrimp eat seastars and only seastars? Well get one yellow cuke and maybe a pink and green cuke. Yellow ones devide really quickly so you'll have two soon enough. How about a boxer crab? Sexy shrimp like to be kept in small groups, 3 should be cool. Emperor shrimp are interesting, they will live on the cukes and feed on mucus.

How about a fire or cleaner shrimp....a serpent starfish would also be cool. Start out with about 5 snails and then get more as needed.

I also vote fire shrimp :)

Boxer crabs are really cool, and sexy shrimps are much bolder in groups.
Also i have heard not too keep more than one yellow cuke! Somebody may be able to back this up/or blow it out of the water!!
I heard they will spawn in groups and the gamates are poisness!

I WOULD RECOMMEND GETTIN A SMALL GROUP (3 OR SO) OF SEXY SHRIMP. THEY ARE ENTERTAINING AS HELL AND PERFECT FOR SMALL THANKS LIKE YOURS WHERE YOU WON'T LOSE THEM.
