I started this scape awhile ago and I finally got around to finishing it. It's a 0.9 gallon cube for those who don't know. For now it houses a crowntail betta but I think I'm going to put him in something else and put some rilli shrimp in here. Let me know what you think of the scape

Thank you. The background is just what I happened to have around I don't really like either. But I thought it looked better than the wall behind. And for the shrimp I really don't know much about them. I just was thinking rillis because they are small and cool looking. What species wold you recommend?
There are others here far more experienced with freshwater shrimp then I am, but it's pretty well known that amano shrimp are nearly bullet proof. Cherry shrimp are pretty tough too.
With such a small tank, water parameters will be nearly impossible to keep stable. So more dainty species of shrimp with very specific water requirements may not survive. I'd say do as much research as you can, contemplate what maintenance regimen your prepared to commit to, and go from there.
Hope that helps...

In such a small tank, you can absolutely keep water parameters stable if you don't get sloppy. Dozens do so on the forum with bowls and such.
The real problem in a tank that small, though, is the "Zebra" Rock being used. That much of it in such a small volume of water is really going to impact water hardness and won't be suitable for much more than Cherry Shrimp.
