Shrimp ID

I have had two female shrimp of this type for about a year. I would really like to get more, but cannot determine the species. They were wold by my LFS as Sunkist Shrimp. I was told they were a type of neocardia, however, they are much larger than my blue velvets or cherry shrimp. They were housed with the cherry shrimp, but never berried. And as you can see they are as large as my young female betta. Any ideas of the type ??

I'm guessing, it's an Ammano Shrimp. Good to have. Eat algae.

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard
