Bk's 1st Low Light Tank (2.5g)

Got my brothers 2.5g tank not 2 long ago and decided to turn it into a shrimp/snail tank (no ferts/no co2)
Today went ahead and started to scape it..
Added few types of anubias, ferns, flame moss.
So far I think it looks good..





(The huge patch of flame moss in the center back is just there temporarily since i have no other place to put it. Also the guppy grass on the right will soon be out as well)

For the moment theres only 1 female shrimp (thanks derek), 1 purple brig (thanks FTM) and a group of boraras (thank you.. well me..)
In the near future will be adding more shrimp and maybe even use it to grow out some CPD fry.

Suggestions/Comments Appreciated.

Nice rock on the left! I think it would look really cool if you let the moss grow half-way on to it from the wood which in my opinion would look really natural. Do you have plans for a foreground? I'd recommend possibly java moss so it's not all one species of moss and it can still grow in low light (which I'm sure you know).I'd be curious to see how everything grows out. Good luck!

Thanks fishboy
I plan to keep the foreground open since i will soon be adding more shrimps and kinda want that cleaner look of the substrate. But i will mess around with the moss and wood/stones since i still got 2-3 more golfballs of flame moss

the tigers are Caridina sp and Cherries are NeoCaridina so interbreeding shouldnt be a problem.
