Amano shrimp are the best algae eaters out there, as far as shrimp go. They eat hair algae, brush algae, most types of string algae, and are one of the few things that will even eat black beard algae. However, there is a trick to their success; they are only really good algae eaters when they’re hungry. To get them hungry you have to refrain from feeding them food so they will go after the algae.
