Sand works just fine for pretty much any plant you might like to add. Plant debris from your moss, leftover food and shrimp poo will help provide nutrients and it's simple enough to add low level ferts if needed. With something more to climb on, you'd likely see your shrimp more often too. Mine are forever marching along the driftwood branch or clinging upside down to the floaters picking thru the roots for food.

Well the bowl is currently empty but starting Monday, the bowl will be revived and this time On my desk at school. Will be starting it with a Dry Start and will contain babies of the 6 Blue Velvets getting shipped out by Speedie today

Carpet plant will be hydroctyle curtosy of H4n. Now that I am getting the Reef side of this hobby settled down its time to kick this side into gear.
