Cool! Now just make sure that you don't end up with Malayan shrimp . Most store keepers have a difficult time distinguishing between the two. Malayans don't eat algae anywhere near as ravenously as Amano shrimp. Also, full-grown females Amanos eat a LOT more algae than males or juveniles.

It doesn't matter if you just want them for display, though. They're all wonderfully cute.
