Amano - Yamato shrimp - Caridina japonica
some stores try to sell you common ghost shrimp
instead of these special veracious algae eaters.

SAE - Siamese algae eater - Crossocheilus siamensis
some stores try to sell you Thai, Chinese, Indian, Flying
Fox (catfish/barbs) instead of this algae eating fish.

even Kevin at H2O can screw you. he once sold me a
bristlenose pleco which turned out to be a common one,
so know all you can about the fish before you buy them.
