Wood Shrimp addition - Pics

Just got these 2 guys yesterday. I have some floating debris/food in my tank (from the constant water movement), and was hoping they could help correct that.

Thats a pretty neat looking shrimp, the ones I saw at the LFS didn't have that defined of a line on their backs. That is really neat, what do they eat or have to be feed? I was just wondering as I have never seen anyone that owns some.

They have "fans" on their front appendages, tiny little hairs that filter the water for food and infusoria. These 2 are about 3 inches, head to tail, but I've read they can get up to 6.5 inches. They were a little expensive, $12 each.

WOW 12-14 bucks is pretty pricey in Tx. they are about 5 bucks going rate. But I guess everywhere is different.

As much as I hate to give business to major chains, Petsmart is the only place I've ever seen them.
