Someone mentioned earlier that you won't have to worry about amano shrimp poop everywhere. Just wanted to warn you so you're prepared...
None of my livestock poops as much as my 4 amanos, not even my otos and pleco. My 20 is constantly littered with little black shrimp poops everywhere, and it's impossible to completely clean them up. They show up like magic right after a WC. I'm really starting to wish I had chosen black sand over white. :)
Not to dissuade you from them. They're great little shrimps, funny and they clean the tank. And the poops are small enough that it won't be a strain on your bioload- they're just unsightly, is all.
