If you haven't kept shrimp before, or crystals before i would get a lower grade and see how they go first befoer spending millions of pounds on higher grades.

I purchased some grade B/A and today just spotted some shrimplets in my tank :)
Have a look in my journal to see what these grades are like, I like them just as much as higher grades but would love some top range ;)

Yeah but they're shrimp:/ I can get amano's for 2 quid each and they do the job, I can't justify near £20 for a shrimp :lol:

Are cherry shrimp good at algae cleaning?

Cherry Shrimp are excellent algae eaters, but most people don't keep CRS for algae eating. They're generally kept for their looks :rolleyes:
