yes the algae eating ones are amano shrimp. also called japonica shrimp by some stores. you dont exactly want those for a small want shrimp that are cherry shrimp size.

there are a few neocaridina choice you can have in that bowl. yellow shrimp(what i currently use), blue pearl shrimp, orange.pumpkin shrimp, rili shrimp, blue rili shrimp, painted fire red cherry shrimp.

depending on how tall that vase is, a small sword plant or crypt can be a nice centerpiece. an elevated blyxa japonica could also be nice, with some low type of carpet plant around it. by elevated i mean try to figure out how to raise it above your foreground to make it stand out and be taller. maybe touching the top of the water.
