I added 20 to my 48 gallon community tank. Most were juvies, and 99% of them ended up as food within a day...including my danios and neons joining in the feast. I'm also pretty sure Rams would see them as a snack.

The Amano are pretty large and are the best algae eating shrimp on the planet...but they're a little boring looking IMO. Do you want one for display or to keep things clean?

A member here named severum mama breeds and sells all sorts of stuff. I know she has large amano's right now. Shoot her a PM if you get interested. She's great.
