>From what I've been told by many people, the shrimp you are looking for
is the "Ghost Shrimp" commonly sold in fish stores.  I added a bunch to
my 70gal and they really went to town scavenging.  Some stores sell them
as much as a couple dollars each, but try to find a store that sells
them as feeders... then they are more like eight cents each.  P.S.  IMO
don't overload your tank with them, or you will have problems.
