I get them at my LFS they are about 6 for $10. They are great part of a clean up crew.
So a guy walks into a Pet Store

Guy: "I have Algae on my drift wood!"

Pet Clerk: "Take two Plecos and call me next week."

I believe Bubba is confusing the feeder shrimp that are raised in backyards or caught in the local streams as Amano. Although I think they look almost as cool. They are basically red cherry's but have lost their color (some are brown, some white, some have dark stripes). But they do sort of look like Amano's, but the pattern is like a red cherry (minus the red). Hope this isn't too confusing!
