Are you sure the shrimps cleaned the moss from BBA? Mine was covered with BBA too (it looked dark green, almost black because of it) and my shrimps didn't solve the problem so I had to toss it out of my tank. Later on I found out that the light bulbs (T5 HO's) were old already and had lost some intensity. When I replaced them, my plants recovered their true colors again. Ludwigia Repens turned from brown to red and the rest from a dirty dark looking green to a fresher lighter shade. The CO2 and ferts were on target...it was onlythe lights.
