Where to get seed shrimp?

I have a 30g lightly (so far) planted tank with two ghost shrimp, one nerite snail and five neon tetra. The algae is covering the plants so thickly that I'm afraid the plants will begin dying.

Started learning about seed shrimp, and they sound like the ideal solution both for the algae and my forgetfulness in feeding the tetras.

Where do I get them? Will they survive with the filter and bubble wall running?

They're typically not something you can buy with ease but check with your local aquarium shops to see if they have any that they could give you.

Beyond that, seed shrimp aren't going to help with algae and are not a long-term solution for feeding fish.

Read up and do some searching here on the forum to understand how and why your tank developed algae. Check out the 'Algae' section here, as well. You'll want to figure out what's going on in your tank in order to change your habits and eliminate your algae issue.
