was the bowl prone to substrate disturbances?

My stupid blyxa aubertii has been floating up for the past few days and it really started to frustrate me so I tied it down to my fissidens DW. hopefully over the course of the next month it will grow enough roots into the substrate to attach itself (assuming it wont float up again )
What i did find was that it had already grown some very nice roots in a short period of time, so i am confident that it survived shipping and will be able to take to my tank. it even grew a few new leaves.

As far as shrimp go i think i finally have a berried high grade chocolate, but it's very difficult to tell because of all the black color. i can't see the eggs at all.

Since this tank is designed by me to house crystal shrimp, I am not abandoning the idea yet and will try to buy a few mischling shrimp in the near future (when they become available). who knows, maybe I'll be able to see a taiwan bee shrimp in the next year or so. i have never seen one in real life before :P I bet they are amazing though.
