...my goal is a mix of deep red/purple in females and orange with red striped males.
Can you post a picture to show what you mean by striped males? I've never seen stripes on cherry males.
Here are some more shrimp-y mosses.
First is my favorite; I think it's peacock moss. It looks in pictures like Taiwan/Xmas, but it is a finer texture. I love this moss.
Second is I think stringy moss, in the yellows tank. It has a coarse, pointy texture and seems to grow upright for me. What else could it be if it's not stringy moss?
Third is flame in the background, java in the foreground, taken through very dirty glass in the Sakura tank. I need to yank the java, but haven't the heart, as those guys love to graze on top, and shrimp call the shots at my house, second only to the German Shepherds.
Fourth I think may be weeping moss. I've had it before in a properly planted tank and it looked different than this, but it was enhanced with juiced water and CO2 in that tank, whereas in this tank it ran with nothing but water for the past few months as the tank got cycled. I swear it is draping on me like weeping moss, and I had bought some a year or so ago that I threw into a tank and decided I was scammed.
