Looks good, I can picture the rocks covered in moss already. Do you have different types of moss? What are they?
Also, do you mind sharing your water parameters?

Nice setup! I'll be following this one for sure for future reference on my shrimp tanks. Keeping shrimp [alive] is one thing I need to figure out.

Cheers,
Phil
