    Define the word "war"?
    Breeding? Fighting? Playing?

    It also depend on the size or the tank and to some extend the personality of the shrimps themselves I think.

    I had my fire shrimp after a skunk shrimp in a 105g.

    What shrimps do you want exactly? Fire shrimp, banded coral shrimp or pistol shrimp?
    Pistol shrimp will need a shrimp goby to be comfortable. It won't bother other shrimps and other shrimps won't bother them because they stay in their burrows all the time. BTW, you need a sand bed to keep this shrimp.
    fireshrimp is beatiful but it may be very cryptic.
    Banded coral shrimp will be aggressive toward other shrimps.

    I got a cleaner shrimp and a coral branded shrimp (they get along fine although the CBS seems to always follow the cleaner around) and this weekend i have to add a peppermint shrimp to clear some minor aptasia and would really like to add a pistol along with a yellow watchman gooby...
    What are my chances of of a coral branded, cleaner, peppermint and a pistol shrimp getting along in a 34g aqua euro cube with about 50-60lb liverock?

    Thanks,

    Ok so I added the biggest peppermint shrimp (1.5-2") and a goby on Saturday and on Monday morning he was well and dancing (same goes for the goby). Now the peppermint was being chased around for short periods when he was first introduced by the cleaner shrimp(3") but he lost interest pretty fast and CBS has been pretty docile as he was molting (finished on Sunday and he actually ripped one of his claws off from the base - I feel bad for the guy but hopefully he will grow it back)

    I think they will still chase each other off their rocks but in the long run they will be OK if well fed; I'm also planning to add a tiger shrimp in there for the goby to have a buddy as he looks a little lonely but at least he hangs out at the front of the tank
