Shrimpia

Hello everyone i am building a 55 gallon tank called shrimpia. In this tank shrimp will be able to roam on grazinglands aka moss. They will be able to climb countless pieces of driftwood and rocks covered in plants. They will be able to swim in the water without fear of fish... dun dun dun
So here it is so far
Shrimp: i will be ordering yellow shrimp then bamboo shrimp then a vampire shrimp, maybe ghost shrimp and finally taiwan bees
Plants: Mosses, subwerrsetang, and baby tears....
this is what i have so far after two days

I'd skip the ghost shrimp as they will likely kill your other shrimp, at least the babies.

+1 on skipping the ghost and don't use those rocks if you plan on Taiwan Bees to be on the safe side.

Risky. Crayfish can be quite vicious when they want to be. My shrimp, I wouldn't do it.
