Bio Load of a fire shrimp compared to a fish?

Recommended Posts

I’m a big fan of fire shrimp (blood shrimp.)  I want to keep the bio load minimal in my new 14 gallon tank.  I’ve always heard that inverts have a low bio load, but fire shrimp seem pretty big.  Any idea how they compare to a small fish such a small ocelleris clown?

It’s minimal and not going to make a difference. Hopefully you get one that isn’t super shy. .....I rarely see mine.

The one I used to have was pretty shy too.  Saw two together in the LFS today.  They were in a tank of display corals but were both hanging out together on the sand bed near the front.  Supposedly they are much less shy if there’s more than one.  
So I’m actually thinking about getting two.  That’s why I’m wondering about the bio load.
