Okay. I've been calling stores in my area looking for glass shrimp. I called one and they said they only carry what I thought he said "jatibonico shrimp".... anyone heard of them? I can't find them anywhere online..

Did I get the name wrong?
Has anyone ever heard of them?

Last time I was at my local petsmart I saw something under a name similar to that. But I will check on that next time I go there.

I checked but it wasn't it. However where did you hear about this aquatic life?

"Caridina Japonica is the other name of the Amano shrimp, one of the most famous freshwater crustaceans that we keep in our tanks. It was named after Japanese aquarist TakashI Amano, who introduced them in his tanks in the early 1980's. Amano was the first to notice thoses shrimps' appetite for algae, and since then Caridina Japonica has become popular among aquarists for this interesting feature." - http://caridina.japonica.online.fr/English/
