More surface area the better for them.

beginragnarok Anywhere I have shrimp and Subwassertang together the shrimp are always in that stuff going to town! +Subwasertang is not a really fast grower so less maintenance.

Plants shrimp like

Are there any plants that shrimp love? I have 6 ghost shrimp 2 of which are carrying eggs. As of now they have cabomba, ludwigia, a small sword, anacharis, pennywort, drift wood, one driftwood covered in with marimo moss, another driftwood covered in riccia. I wanted to re-do their tank and add some new plants in. I have a 50/50 6500K light. I do liquid ferts and liquid CO2 a few times a week, so very low tech. I'd like to do a bit of a carpet of pygmy chain sword...yes? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks guys!
