    will shrimp eat algea or only meat type food?
    Also, my LFS sells fire shrimp and cleaner shrimp for $20 each.
    That seems like way too much, or is that a good deal?

    That's a pretty good deal... fire shrimp at my LFS are close to $50 usually.

    They eat meaty foods, not algae. My LFSs sell cleaners for $30 and fire shrimp for $50.

    wow! $50?
    That makes me feel better about spending $20 on a shrimp.
