First Nano 2.5

Hey I recently joined the forums here and I am also new to aquarium and fish. I have a 2.5 gallon tank that I got from a friend and I thought I would share.
The tank is plastic with standard light and standard filter.
Plants are: Bamboo,Banana plant,Trichomanes javanicum, and avacharis.
I want to get some moss for the foreground but I don't really want to drive 45 minutes just to spend 5 bucks on some moss, so if anyone has any extra that they would like to pass along that would be awesome!!!
I plan on making this a shrimp tank, I might add and African Dwarf Frog.
I would love to hear some feedback and constructive criticism.
Here are some pics of my tank...

Sorry about the bad quality pics. The flash, lighting and tank just weren't agreeing.

Update

So i didn't like the rocks so i changed them and i bought some Java Moss and a Ribbon Plant. I like it better then it looked before but im not yet sold. Would love to get some Sword Grass and put it on the left side but thats if I can find any to buy. Is this tank to small to breed shrimp in?

Unfortunately, the ribbon plant is non-aquatic and will die if left in the water. The same is true for the bamboo, actually; it can't have its leaves wet, so unless a good portion of it is out of water you'll run into the same trouble.

You might try a small crypt plant instead.

Cool looking tank, definitely looks like it has more depth than a lot of the 2.5's I see on the forum (including mine). I would suggest looking around at other nano tanks, see what plants people are using, and jotting down the plant types you like. Once you get a good list of plants going and you do some research on the proper care and conditions for those plants, you can begin to setup a nice scape. I've have spent soo much time recently on the computer reading up and researching this stuff....amazing how much time it seems to suck up.

Welcome to the forums, I can't wait to see this tank develop!
