what types of algae does Amano shrimp eats and how many are required per gallon?

I’m pretty sure they eat almost all algae except black beard algae. They are also called the algae eating shrimp. I don’t think there is a “requirement” per gallon. I keep one in a 40 gal and he seems happy enough

They do not breed in Freshwater so you can do as many as you like. I agree they will not eat BBA.

LFS recently got Amano shrimp in stock, but those are quite expensive like Rs 800/pair i.e USD $5.13/pair.so I want to be very sure if it will help with my tank or not.
