It is all relative, I have a couple thousand dollars worth of shrimp so $30 is not expensive. If it allows even an extra 1% to survive to adulthood it has more then paid for itself.

I had a school of adults in my 120gal tank (about 6 of them) and they seemed to keep the BBA under control. They preferred flakes but they were constantly cleaning the plants as well.

I have some of them who are breeding. They fight quite a bit so I think I need to start moving the berried females into a different tank so the babies or females don't get attacked as much.

I would suggest the 4 15gal tanks or the 10gallons if you want to build a stand for them. I keep neos and caridinas separate since as you said they have different water preferences. If you are...
