Ah, that takes me back.  Time used to be that the term "Wal-Mart Bulbs"  
was more common than "Amano Shrimp". These were one of the only good ways
of getting plants in some places.  Yeah, they work.  Odds are that they're
hybrids (crispus x rigidifolius?), but they can look good.  And some will 
be duds, but who cares?  It's 6 bulbs for $2.67!
