Vampire shrimp?

I'm thinking of getting one. A lfs near me has them cheap. Would they do well in low end brackish water?

I'm not an expert but I don't think they are a brackish species.

They are a freshwater filter feeder....they would likely do very poorly in brackish water...even mildly brackish.
