Cool find in Denver area

For anyone in the Denver area, 

Just got back from Neptune's (at University and County Line) just off C470
with a cool new critter... 

Singapore Wood shrimp.  These guys are BIG, 2.5 to 3 inches long,
cool brown color.  They are filter feeders.  They sit in the current, with
little "catchers mitts" open to catch stuff that floats by.  No claws to
worry about.  They are a little pricey, $9.99 each.  I've got one, I'll
probably be getting another one in the next few days.

They've also got a bunch of algae-eating shrimp.  They thought they had
a bunch of SAEs, but they turned out to be false SAEs (Epalzeorhynchus sp.
or Garra taeniata).
