Algea Shrimp?

I just got new fish at a store i never went to before and i looked around and found a shrimp called algea eating shrimp. I didnt get any because i dont know any thing about them. I need to research them but i would also like to ask for your advice. Anything that you know on Algea shrimp is a big help thanks.

Look around on here and see if you can ID which one. Algae shrimp is pretty vague. Most likely amanos, ghost, or red cherry shrimp.

I would guess amanos or ghost shrimp too... RCS are probably too popular (and easily ID'd) to be labeled 'algae eating' shrimp. (Although they do love an algae buffet...)
