cherry shrimp now amano for thread algae
I seem to have set up a successful cherry shrimp (neocaridina davidi) tank.
I'm setting up a new tank and I'm worried about hair and thread algae.
There is some, maybe both thread and hair alagae, in the moss I installed.
Will amano shrimp eat this type of algae?
I assume cherry will not do much as I've not seen them do so in my current tank.
I'm searching, of course, for what I can find on amano shrimp care.
I don't see many alarm bells other than they likely will never breed (unless I go for saltish which I'm not) and they will likely be wild caught.
Will amano shrimp eat thread/hair algae?
Are there significant care challenges other than understanding they will not breed?
