Thank you all, I was just trying to be clever. This is just the start, I will be adding more.

What is planted for now is the "bio falls" (G). I'm planning to plant the media box by adding a mesh bag of substrate.

I asked "what can I grow here" to sfbaaps members growing emersed plants, and Neil Shieh answered me to grow moss.

A neat idea would be to grow purple bamboo in your HOB! they'll grow right out and they look nice

A heavily planted shrimp tank is possible!
