What kind of shrimp is this? Scientific name if possible.

I don't think I've owned this one before, haven't released it yet since it definitely is designed for hunting.

Before it was bagged up, I observed it running around the tank trying to catch...

Wondering why do you dose both leaf zone & flourish? I would add 1 ml flourish whenever you do a water change. Without the amanos I think you would have had some algae issues by now.

I would cut the fertz back halfway... based on the look of your tank.

Tank looks nice, but too much fertz in my opinion.

Beware of the amanos, if they don't get enough food, they'll make a snack out of one of it's tankmates.

The amanos in my tanks ALWAYS seem...

If you want to eradicate them, you'll need one of these.

Is this the look you're going for? I have no idea what kind of moss this is.

http://i.imgur.com/b2f39vw.jpg

Tiny turtle & fish seem to approve of it though. I can take better photos if you want over the weekend, because I want the moss identified.

That's a sign it's healthy & happy when it sprouts seedlings like that.

I wouldn't worry about it spreading all over the place because it grows so slow, you'll remove them whenever you do any routine water changes/siphoning.
