Ya I was just telling for my tank they do the job. They won't eat hair algaes, but my siamensis do it... So they they work well both.
Amano shrimps are better for cleaning, but I know there's another shrimp that eat more than amano. I just think it's ghost shrimp...
When I started my aquarium, I had mass hair algae problems, I bought 3 baby siamensis, expecting them to clean the tank in 1-2 month, but after 2 days, there wasn't any hairs on my plants. Now I must feed them with pellets...
