Ah, well I got a coupla of them. Turns out my Petco has stopped selling them(i didn't ask why) and the guy gave me them for free. WOOT!
These guys(or gals or both) remind me of pinball machines. I should name them something that is pinball related xD
Here they are, sorry their hard to photograph. A bit see through LOL

I feel lucky, it was very funny to watch the guy net em. I can tell he doesn't have a whole lotta fish catching experience xD

I set up a nice hidy corner for them. They should love it.

I love amanos, they're at a size where the betta wont see them as a snack XD

you might need to do a large water change during your next water change if the tank is cycled. there will be some extra bioload. some, but not much.

I just netted them/released them into the tank, the calmest shrimps I've ever netted. They just sat ontop of the net/patiently waited to get released. LOL

I deff got lucky with these ones.
