Thanks. But now I have a bunch of ostracoda in my tank too. Here's a picture of a bunch of them on my marimo near a baby shrimp:

Vladdy I bought some Marimo and made a carpet out of it. Some of my shrimp got berried and now I see baby shrimp. My dwarf hairgrass didn't do to well, so I had to take most of it out. The marimo ball was about the size of a golf ball, and as you can see from the picture, I was able to get a lot of little marimo balls from the main one. I also got a new piece of driftwood, which you can see in the picture resting against a coconut shell.

Sarkazmo Your tank has come along very nicely! I do have a recommendation though, but I don't know if it'll fit into your design scheme. RCS LOVE Java Moss. You could attach some Java Moss to the granite with thread or make a 'tree' with a bit of driftwood or manzanita. Keep up the great work and post more pics!

SvenBoogie If you have time, would you mind posting some photos of specifically the lights you are using/how you have them set up?

Vladdy Yay! The plants finally arrived. The plants don't look as healthy in the picture as they do in person. The CO2 diffuser I ordered is due to arrive in about 9 days. I compared the hairgrass I got from the pond and the one that I got from eBay, and it is indeed the same plant. I put the plants in and I ripped out a page from a really big sketchpad and used that as the wallpaper. Here's is the aquascape I came up with:
