Thanks bro,

Was considering Amano but they can get quite big. Any shrimps smaller in size but as effective?

In this case, size matters. Amanos will eat tons more than a 3-4 cherries.

I got some N. denticulata sinensis in one of my tanks, and because they are growing in their population I think they are more effective than Amanos. If you buy 10 Amanos you still got 10 after an year. If you buy 10 N.denticulata you got over 100 after a year ;)
