    Picked up 3 Amano Shimp at the LFS the other day. Don't know how many i would need for my size tank but so far these guys are eating a lot. Sure they have a TON to eat so we'll see how long it takes them to get the tank in shape.

    If you get the algae cleaned out, they will do a decent job of keeping it at bay. If you have a lot of algae they'll never keep up.
    Cool shrimp and fantastic pics
    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    I think next water change i'm going to brush a lot of the algae off my driftwood which is easy to do and where they've been spending most of their time. With that gone hopefully they'll move on the the algae thats on the plants that i can't get off.

    Sounds like a good plan
