I do have a sponge filter on my inlet. Both shrimp are first timers(to my knowledge) so perhaps thats it. I will wait around and see if some little guys show up in the next weeks or so.

Thanks!

Lileaeopsis can be a slow grower. If you plan to get a lot of it initially, I think youll be able to deal with its slow growth. Hairgrass grows a little quicker.

After looking closely, I can see an intensity difference. I'm not trying to go high tech but don't like the stock light either. Will you be dosing co2? Can you take a pic of how you mounted the light?
