DIY 10 gallon shrimp tank

What I have in the works is a 10 gallon tank that is going to have some DIY shelf/levels in it. It is also going to be a half bare bottom tank as well. The shelf and the thing that keeps the gravel back are all made from plastic mesh. This is going to have cherry shrimp in it. As the tank they are in now has gotton to small for them. I have already made the shelfs and all just have not put the gravel in yet and the water. I want to plant some moss on one of the sports that holds up the bigger level/shelf. Here's is a full front shot as of now and a top down shot.

Thank you,

Its manly going to be anubais and some java fern. I am think i might put the moss in the cups. I was thinking of putting java moss on the biggest support of the tallest shelf. I am really looking forward to putting it all together. I am to the spot its going in. Wicth means i have plants and tanks to move around. I did a test with the plastic mesh and i think the gravel will be able to hold the shelf down by its self. I really like the look ready and dont even have it with gravel or water yet!!!
