So it has been a while since I have updated..
About a month ago I finally got 7 Amano Shrimp, 3 Horned Nerite snails, and 2 Zebra Nerite snails from the LFS. The Amanos seem to love my tank!

If you hadn't noticed, my tank is taken over by moss. You can hardly tell there is wood under the moss at this point. I have taken a lot out and it is still full! I kind of like it though. It is like a jungle and the shrimp like it. Also, one of the zebra nerite snails loves hiding and will disappear in the moss for long periods of time.

...Recently, I have added a small group of Cherry Shrimp, but I'll save that for another post since I take too many photos... (They are just so petite and photogenic!).
