I have been haveing a problem with a green like fuzz algae on my aquarium plants and I was either thinking of getting amano shrimp or cherry shrimp.Which one of the shrimp would do a better job with the algae and have the best chances of staying alive in my aquarium.Thanks.

Cherrys really wont eat algae at all, they are a scavenger. Amano shrimp will eat some algae, but really, shrimp are a bad direction to go for an algae eating crew IMO
