That's a beautiful tank you have there, and I love those shrimp! (But that poor sword needs to be moved to a larger tank).

Very nice!

That HC is amazing. I love yellow shrimp. They are my favorite. I wish I had more than I do. I love the emersed bacopa. Do you ever see shrimp climbing on it?

Looking really good, that sword is looking a little too big for the tank though :/ Maybe try a compact sword? Might look more proportionate, although to be honest I'm not sure how big they actually get.
