I have Mystery snails (P bridgesii) in my tank. They don't eat plants, just algae and leftover food, get along nicely with the shrimp, and add some color. Most anywhere that has fish will have them for a couple bucks apiece. 1 or 2 would be fine in that tank.

Still waiting for my flame moss and fissidens to be delivered. Where should I place the mosses?

All over the eyesore rock 0.0 get that out lol.

Really it is too big though.

I think you should get the fissidens all over your driftwood from start to finish. Flame goes up, so get it on either side of the DW.

Fissidens in the corner and flame moss on the DW.
Is there anything I should know about mosses? dosing, lighting,etc? I am pretty well versed to the hobby but a moron to plants. Any advice would be great! I have tons of Java ferns and anubias in my tanks, but none that requires attention.

I launched that rock out into the yard. The rock was a result of me being bored. Its now left a massive dent in my fence.
