Looks good...maybe slope the substrate a bit and possibly lose the background foam.

Lose the foam huh? I kinda liked it lol. I'm going to look at some ebi's with it removed and see if I like it.

What are your thoughts on moss walls?

The background takes away from the driftwood.

I like moss walls. Is this just for shrimp?

18g (Red Cherry Neo Shrimp | Malawa Shrimp)
7.5g (Yellow Neo Shrimp)
3.2g (Pumpkin Neo Shrimp)
2g (Snails)
11.4g (new home soon for the Pumpkin Neos)

A moss wall would be better than the background. You can see my Ebi for a background-less example.

The background has to go IMO. Either that or plant most of it.
