Different Kinds of Shrimp
I'm looking for some shrimp to take care of an algae problem in my tank. I'd prefer cherry shrimp because of their red color (tan-colored sand) but I've heard that Amanos are best at algae eating. Can anyone tell me how cherry shrimp and red crystal shrimp are at eating algae compared to ghost and Amano shrimp? Do shrimp climb into plants like water wisteria to eat brown algae off the leaves? And can they eat diatome algae off the glass? Advice and insight would be most appreciated, friends.
