Don't worry, he'll eat the shrimp soon enough.

Have you tried blood worms?

As for shurbert, he is eating now, the filter was a little strong for him so I turned it off and he ate right away!

Willow moss is growing good!

As for the Hagen internal, best filter ever, I can fit 8 bio media rings in it along with a sponge and it still has great flow, but not enough so the betta doesn't get pushed around.

The scape is called "tragedy" because I wanted to try and create a scape that resembles a forest after its nearly reached death but came back to life
