Buffalo - Shrimp sighting


I was in Markhiem in Amherst today and saw they had rudolph red nose shrimp and "algae eating shrimp" which looked like Amano shrimp to me. (I'm not an expert at naming fish/shrimp so heres a description: some had a white stripe along their back and brown spots, others looked more plain as far as I can remember).
Last time I was there they had a feeder tank with 100+ ghost shrimp, but today they were gone.

Oddly enough they didn't have any ottos left, which is what I was on the look out for. Since the local "petmegastore" had an otto tank with multiple dead fish in it, I came up empty handed today. I remember there was a post about cherry shrimp at the pet place in NT a while back so I thought I'd share what I saw so today wouldn't be a total wash.

Yup, the pet place in NT has cherry shrimps, otto's, "algae eating shrimps" which are the amano shrimps and I also saw a few of the rudolph shrimps. They've even got true SAE's.
Last but not least, they also have ghost shrimps! lol
