Setting up my shrimp tank..: advice?!

So I'm planning to get off my lazy ass and covert my 11.4 mr aqua in yo a shrimp tank this Sunday..:

My poor shrimp have been staying in a 1.5 gallon for a while...

Hoping to get things going right. My current stock in the mr.aqua tank are...

ada aqua soil "new"
Finnex ray planted + (24")
Running an EHEIM 2213(will add a prefilter so I don't lose any baby shrimp)

8 neon tetras 1 guppy( will move to 12 long as soon as tank settles in )


Currently holds 2 pieces of drift wood covered with fissidens and Anubias nana petite
A couple "volcano rocks" from geobunga hard scapes (not proven to be safe but I haven't had any issues yet(fingers crossed)
Some Monte Carlo will eventually fill the foreground...

I also have some java ferns that had no place to go and one very happy Anubias. Will be moving my altheranthera once I figure out the route of this tank.

Is there anything that should be removed or added for the happiness of my shrimp? no recent update of this tank. The water is super clear now and those plants have moved to my 12long.

Thanks for ur help in advance, I don't want to do this move unless I get advice.
